Vets get medals from South Korea
OMAHA, Neb. -- American servicemen are receiving medals from the Korean government in tribute for their sacrifice and service more than 50 years later. Already more than 112,000 Korean War Service Medals have been issued.
There are about 1.8 million Korea vets of every branch of service, or their next of kin, eligible to receive it.
The medal was initially offered to U.S. Korean War veterans more than 50 years ago, but was never issued because of a law prohibiting the military from wearing medals from foreign governments.
