Around Town: Things to Do

Korean War Veterans Armistice Day Observation

Join the City of Tamarac to honor those who served. Light refreshments will be served.

Did you know? According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Korean War Veterans Armistice Day marks “that date in 1953 when the shooting stopped in what is sometimes called America’s “Forgotten War.

Although the occasion doesn’t rate holiday status, it does go some way towards recognizing the sacrifice of 36,000 American lives in the three years of combat against totalitarian aggression on the Korean peninsula. Of the 5.7 million Americans in the military during the 1950-to-53 conflict, 1.8 million saw service in the Korean theater.

There remain among us some 1.15 million veterans of the Korean War era. This total includes 101,000 who also served during the Vietnam conflict in the 1960s, and nearly 12,000 who began service in World War II.”

When: July 27, 5:00 pm

Where: Veterans’ Park, 7825 Southgate Boulevard, Tamarac, FL 33068
