Service honouring Korean War vets to be held Saturday

  • Print

Lt-Gov. Philip Lee will head a group of dignitaries at a candlelight service for Korean War veterans Saturday at the Brookside Cemetery.

The official end to the hostilities on the Korean Peninsula came on July 27, 1953, ending three years of fighting. The veterans will be joined by family and friends and members of the Korean community in Manitoba to mark the 60th anniversary of the ending of the Korean War, in which 516 Canadians died.

The candlelight service will take place at the Korean Veterans Cairn in the Military Field of Honour in Brookside Cemetery and will begin at 4 p.m.

The cemetery is at 3001 Notre Dame Ave., west of Red River College.

After the service, participants will gather for a reception at the Neil Bardal Funeral Centre located across from Brookside Cemetery at 3030 Notre Dame Ave.

The anniversary service will recognize the designation by the federal government of 2013 as the year of the Korea War Veteran.
