Around the World to Honor Korean War Veterans and Promote Peace
The Korean War is often called the Forgotten War. CKA Member Hannah Y Kim has dedicated her life to change that. Hannah founded Remember727 in 2008 to honor Korean War Veterans and promote peace on the Korean Peninsula. She has since organized an annual Armistice Day commemoration every July 27th, and spearheaded the historic passage of federal legislation that designated July 27th as a memorial day for Korean War veterans. From 2017-19, she traveled across six continents to 30 countries that participated in the Korean War (1950-53), including North Korea, and all 50 US states and 4 US territories.
Join us on June 25th as we mark the Anniversary of the Korean War and hear stories from Hannah’s journeys across the world to thank veterans and keep hope alive for peace on the Peninsula.
She will be joined by her former boss, Congressman Charles Rangel (retired), a decorated Korean War Veteran, and Colonel William Weber, chairman emeritus of the Korean War Veterans Memorial Foundation.
Hosted by CKA and Remember727.
