Washington, DC– Today, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) released the following statement on National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, marking the anniversary of the Korean War ceasefire agreement signed on July 27, 1953:
"Today our nation honors the 5.7 million American men and women who served during the Korean War era,” said Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard. “We pay tribute to 407 servicemembers from Hawai‘i who made the ultimate sacrifice. The service and sacrifice of our Korean War veterans will never be forgotten.”
Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is a cosponsor of H.R. 1475, the Korean War Veterans Memorial Wall of Remembrance Act, and H.Con.Res. 50, a bill that would establish a memorial at Arlington National Cemetery for servicemembers who died or who are missing in action, unaccounted for, or died on the Korean peninsula after the Korean War armistice was signed in 1953.
