“The young students have been planning their annual commemoration trip for many months and will be here for just a few days. They would like to meet the people who brought peace to their country in 1953. 

The event will take place  Wednesday, Jan. 15 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Seaforth Highlanders of Canada Armoury, Vancouver.

It is free and includes traditional Korean performances, singing, dancing and refreshments. As well, special medals from the government of Korea will be handed out to veterans or their family members.
