The Korean War raged across the tiny peninsula before ending nearly 60 years ago.

More than 2.5 million Koreans from both North and South Korea were killed as communist and democratic forces waged a proxy war pitting the rival world powers of the United States, Great Britain, China and the Soviet Union against each other during the early years of the Cold War.

To commemorate the end of the war, Sedona will soon welcome South Korean Minister of Patriots and Veteran Affairs, Sungchoon Park, who will attend the Korean-American War Memorial celebration hosted by the Sedona Korean-American Association on Friday, June 14, at 10 a.m. at the Sedona Military Service Park.
