"Veterans hold solemn Armistice Day Ceremony in Canada’s Capital" (August 9)

 

The July 27 National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day in Ottawa was a small, but solemn affair, with 15 Korean War Veterans participating, along with officials from the Korean Embassy and the president of the Canada Korea Society.

The reason for the small size of the group was that many veterans were participating that same day in ceremonies at the Korea War Veterans National Memorial Wall in the Toronto suburb of Brampton. Also, the Canadian Embassy had held its June 25 Korea Day ceremonies and luncheon in Ottawa a few weeks earlier, with many veterans traveling there to participate in that annual event.
