Ceremonies to award the Republic of Korea Ambassador for Peace Medal to Wyoming's Korean War veterans or their surviving family members will take place across Wyoming on Monday, March 20.

Korean Consul General ShinChae-Hyun, Gov. Matthew Mead, Wyoming Adjutant General Maj. Gen. Luke Reiner and Wyoming Veterans Commission Chairman Linda Allgeier will present the medals during the ceremonies.

A ceremony will be held at the Lander Community Center at 2:30 p.m.

The brief ceremony will feature a video presentation from the Korean government and remarks by local officials. Veterans receiving the medals have been notified of the events; no additional medals are available.

Ceremonies will also be held the same day in Casper and Cheyenne.
