Hi everyone,

Please consider attending the 69th-anniversary Cease Fire ceremony of the Korean War. This annual event is organized by the State's House Veteran's Office and attended by all RI Korean War veterans.
 
When: Wednesday, July 27 at 11 AM
Where: Korean War Memorial (corner of South Main Stree and Collge Hill, Providence, RI)

This monument was built on October 8, 1998, for the Rhode Island Korean War veterans who died in the Korean War. The names of the individuals and organizations that sponsored the monument are engraved on the bricks. There is a boardwalk made out of named bricks around the soldier sculpture. The white bricks symbolize the veterans who died or disappeared during the Korean War, and the red bricks bear the names of individuals or organizations that sponsored the monument.

We actively participated in the fundraising to support the monument in 2008 and donated two red bricks with the name of KAARI (KOREAN AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF RI IN DEEP APPRECIATION "YOU SAVED OUR COUNTRY") (pictured below)

We hope to see you there!
