Abstract —Remembering the Korean War (illustrating the pain endured by soldiers)

This year's theme was chosen to mark the 60th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War on July 27, 1953. Between 1950 and 1953, more than 30,000 Canadians fought with the United Nations Command and 516 were killed, defending South Korea against attacks from North Korean and Chinese forces.
