Marine Corps League to honor New Hampshire vets who served in Korea
Marines will express their famous greeting, “Semper Fi” (“Always faithful”), once again at the Margate Resort, 76 Lake St., during opening ceremonies at 7 p.m., followed by a Western style-buffet.
2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the truce of July 27, 1953, between the United States, its United Nations allies and the Republic of South Korea with the Communist nations of North Korea, China, and the Soviet Union. While the truce ended armed fighting, the actual end of the war did not occur until Jan. 31, 1955, with the signing of the armistice between the warring nations.
The Ministry of National Defense of the Republic of Korea claims that 5.3 million people were killed or wounded, including 2.5 million civilians.
While there were those that paid the ultimate sacrifice, an exact number has never been verified and the state archives are limited in scope.
Reservations at $45 can be made through Bob Patenaude, detachment commandant at 253-7970 or mail to Lakes Region Detachment, MCL; P.O. Box 764, Center Harbor, 03226.
