TULSA - Some call it "America's Forgotten War," and much like Vietnam Veterans, those who served in the Korean War didn't come home to tickertape parades.
With the 60th anniversary of the armistice coming up in July, the Department of Defense it trying to right that wrong.
Because of privacy laws passed in 1974, they have no list of veterans, so they're asking help to find them so they can receive a certificate of appreciation.
They also want to invite Korean War vets to Washington, D.C. for a celebration of that anniversary next July.
Maj. Guillermo "Billy" Canedo, USMC and Lt. Col. Dennis Snelling, US Army, are in town to take part in a weekend long celebration of America's heroes which began Thursday, hosted by the Tulsa Marine Corps League.
It's their 11th annual Medal of Honor Day Ceremony.
The guests of honor are Medal of Honor recipient Hersel "Woody" Williams, who won the nation's highest honor during the bloody battle of Iwo Jima, and Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, USMC (Ret.), a highly-decorated Marine who served for decades.
Schwab was posthumously awarded the MOH after heroic actions during the battle of Okinawa, and the local Marine Corps League detachment is named in his honor.
Floral Haven in Broken Arrow will host a veterans breakfast Saturday at 8:00 a.m.
A second wreath laying will take place at Floral Haven at 9:30 a.m.
Then, the remembrance moves to Veterans Park, 6th and Boston, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
Korean War vets and their families are urged to visit the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War webisite.
There, they can learn about the events scheduled for July, and how to receive their certificates of appreciation.
