Korean War Memorial Unveiled



On Friday afternoon I was pleased to attend a short ceremony where a Memorial was unveiled to those men from Dundee who died in the Korean War. The Korean War is often a forgotten conflict but I do think that it is important to remember these young men, mostly if not all on National Service. They went far from home to fight in support of a UN mandate. It was good to see veterans and also family members at the ceremony. We should do all we can to promote peace and justice in the world but we must also support and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country. The memorial is just inside the entrance to the City Chambers.
