More than 200 Korean War veterans from the Valley, including Shelton, are eligible to be recognized during a ceremony Tuesday, April 16 at 6 p.m. at the Sutter-Terlizzi American Legion Post No. 16 in Shelton.
At the event, local veterans who have completed the necessary registration forms will receive an official certificate of appreciation signed by U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. The certificates are part of a three-year program to honor Korean War veterans on the war’s 60th anniversary. The certificate recognition program will end July 27.
