DEDICATION—Korean War veterans and the public turned out Monday, July 27 to formally dedicate the Korean War Statue at Riverside Cemetery in Peshtigo. The statue is a tribute to those who fought and died in the war, which ended when an Armistice was signed on July 27, 1953. The Armistice was designed to “insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved.” No “final peaceful settlement” has been achieved yet. Pictured from left are Chaplain Ron Kaempf, Shirley Bergeson, Korean War veteran Don Bergeson, Cindy Barrette, veterans Al Urbaniak, Jerry Munro, Gerald Behrendt, Bob Ellison, George Barrette and Bill Warren.
