Callout to Korean War veterans and families

RDA Orana is looking forward to hosting South Korean Consul General Whie Jin Lee, in Dubbo on the 22-23 March. He has expressed a keen desire to meet those surviving Korean War veterans, their widows and/or family members. Whilst in the region, he would like to acknowledge the sacrifices made by the veterans during the Korean War and pay respect to them and their families and award Peace medals where appropriate.

“RDA Orana needs your help in seeking information of Korean War veterans or their extended families who may still be living in the region. This includes their widows, families and extended families. The Consul General will be retiring soon, and we are honoured that he has chosen to visit the Orana as one of his final undertakings in the role,” said John Walkom, Chair of RDA Orana.

“We would really appreciate it if anyone who knows of the following people or their families and how to contact them could please get in contact with our office,” said John.
