Korean War veterans to be honored in ceremony at Torrington High School today

TORRINGTON - Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz will honor more than 40 Korean War veterans Thursday during a 3:00 p.m. awards ceremony at Torrington High School.

"Our Korean War veterans fought courageously on the battlefield in some of the harshest conditions, suffering heavy casualties to protect Democracy and stop tyrannical Communist aggression," said Bysiewicz in a press release. "We want the thousands of Korean War veterans living in Connecticut to know we will never forget their bravery and sacrifice. We honor their service to our country during and after the war, when they came home and continued to do public service in our communities."

Bysiewicz will present each veteran with an award in recognition of their service during the war and invite the veterans to share their stories with friends and families in attendance.
