Are you a Korean War Veteran? 
The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Seattle seeks Korean War veterans to honor with the Ambassador for Peace Medal.

This commemorative medal is an expression of appreciation from the Korean government to American service men and women who served in the Korean War. The Ambassador for Peace Medal was first presented to veterans as a special memento for those of who returned to South Korea through the ‘Revisit Program’.  The honor has since expanded to veterans who cannot travel long journey to Korea.
