HONOLULU — Lt. Gen. Francis Wiercinski, commander, U.S. Army-Pacific, was the keynote speaker for a crowd of roughly 300 veterans and the public, during the Korean War Memorial ceremony, Saturday, at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, here. The ceremony honored veterans who fought in the war. “Sixty-one years ago, one of the U.S.’ strongest alliances developed from the disaster,” Wiercinski said. "During the time of the Korean conflict, so many people didn't understand it. Even those fighting didn't understand it. Now, 60 years later, we come to find out how much it really meant and how much it changed an entire country." (Betsy Weiner | U.S. Army-Pacific Public Affairs)
