Barnstable to Host Ceremony Honoring Korean War Armistice

BARNSTABLE – The Town of Barnstable will be hosting a ceremony later this month to mark the armistice which ended the hostilities in Korea.

“We Remember the Forgotten War 1950-1953” will take place at 10 AM on Friday, July 27th, the 65th anniversary of the agreement and feature Special Guest Korean Consul General Kim Yonghyun.

The ceremony will be held at the town’s Korean War Memorial at Veteran’s Beach on Ocean Street in Hyannis.

Since the armistice, North and South Korea remain separate and occupy almost the same territory they had when the war began.

The Korean War, which began on June 25, 1950, when the North Koreans invaded South Korea, ended on July 27, 1953.
