Kentucky Korean War veterans receive special honors

Half a century after they fought for our country, some Kentucky veterans received special honors Thursday.

Korean War veterans were recognized during a ceremony that marks the 55th anniversary of that conflict.  The vets were presented with medallions and certificates to honor their service.

The awards were handed out by a man who was a child during the Korean War, but went on to fight with American soldiers in Vietnam.

The veterans also say today's ceremony was special because it gives them a chance to catch up with each other after so much time.
