Abbotsford Korean Veterans at Great Korean War Event and Appreciation Luncheon at Consul General’s Residence in Vancouver.

Branch 15 Veterans of the Korean War and Peacekeeping, John Molnar and Dan Norgaard, attended this event in Vancouver on June 25th.

Michael Cheng reports “it was a great turnout to commemorate the war and salute the veterans.” “All levels of governments were attending and showed their respects. It was a great honour to call the names of the BC Honour Roll.”
