PLOVER — The Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial Advisory Committee and Village of Plover officials are pleased to announce that the 2018 Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial Ceremony and Program will be held on Sunday, June 3, beginning at 10:45 a.m.
This event will be held at the Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial in Plover. Korean War veterans and their families, veterans from all branches of service, and the public are invited to attend. Representatives from the Korean Consulate, Wisconsin National Guard and Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs have been invited to speak at the program.
The Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial pays tribute to Wisconsinites who fought, died, or are still missing as a result of the Korean War. The memorial features a series of larger-than-life bronze statues as its centerpiece. The figures represent various U.S. armed forces that took part in the war. None of the figures carry a weapon, conveying that peace is ardent hope of all veterans.
A Memorial Tiles Program has been established for those who wish to honor a loved one who served in the Korean conflict. For more information on ordering tiles please visit the Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial website at: www.koreanmemorial.org.
To get to the Memorial take Interstate Highway 39 to County Highway B in Plover. Head west one block to Village Park Drive. Turn left on Village Park Drive and you will be directed to the parking area. The Korean War Veterans Memorial Advisory Committee and Village of Plover officials hope to see you at the program!
