July 26, 2019 - On June 25, 1950, the North Korean Army began an offensive to invade South Korea that resulted in the capture of the republic’s capital, Seoul, within four days. The United States, the United Kingdom and other members of the United Nations moved to actively defend South Korea – an effort that would last until July 27, 1953, when negotiations concluded and fighting finally ended.

To commemorate the service and sacrifice of those who served in the Korean War, Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the Auxiliary hosted a Wreath Laying at the Veterans Memorial on the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Center on Friday, July 26th, 2019. Saturday, July 27th, 2019 marks the 66th anniversary of the ceasefire which halted the 1950-53 Korean War. With the assistance of Veteran Travis Snider, Veteran Dale Step, who served in the Korean War from 1951 to 1952, hung the wreath. The names of Shelby County Veterans killed in action, missing in action, or taken as prisoners of war during the Korean War were read. Questions and information call Post Quartermaster Larry Hume, 936-598-2976 or email chief@chiefimaging.com.
