Washington, DC – Senator Joe Donnelly, member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement acknowledging tomorrow as National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day. It will be the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean War Armistice.
“On this day, we honor our nation’s veterans of the Korean War for their selfless service and the many sacrifices they made,” said Donnelly. “We also reflect on the continuing strength of the United States’ alliance with South Korea and the importance of working together for a peaceful resolution to the tensions on the Korean peninsula today.
“This week, I co-sponsored a resolution in the Senate honoring the sacrifice of U.S. and allied armed forces that served in Korea and calling on North Korea to abide by its international agreements and denuclearize completely. The United States and South Korea are committed to peace in the region and stand firm against threats or actions by North Korea that harm this peace and security.”
