Wichita’s American Legion Post No. 4 will honor Korean War veterans during an event Saturday, the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement.
Doors open at 6 p.m. at the post’s headquarters, 818 N. Water, and the event will start at 6:45 p.m. A dinner of all-you-can eat tacos, re-fried beans, chips and salsa will be available for $5.
The Tornado Alley Young Marines will present the colors and do a tribute to the fallen soldier.
The armistice was signed by representatives of the United Nations, North Korea and China on July 27, 1953, to end the Korean War.
Never miss a local story.
It was designed to “insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved.” A final settlement has yet to be done.
The armistice also established the Korean demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.
