Korean War Veterans Armistice Day is July 27th, and this year marks the 65th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. To celebrate this occassion and honor the Nebraskans who served in Korea, Governor Ricketts will be hosting a special event at the Capitol to honor Korean War Veterans with Ambassador for Peace Medals.
