65th Anniversary of Korean War Armistice

July 23, 2018

The Urology Group and GE Aviation Host Cincinnati’s Premier Event Commemorating the 65th Anniversary of Korean War Armistice

More than 75 Korean War veterans are expected to attend July 27 patriotic program and celebration at GE Aviation’s Learning Centre in Evendale

CINCINNATI (July 23, 2018) – The Urology Group and GE Aviation will honor and celebrate Cincinnati-area Korean War veterans on the historic 65th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ceased fighting on the Korean peninsula in 1953.

Tristate Korean War veterans who are patients of The Urology Group or GE retirees, and their guests, have been invited to attend a July 27 luncheon and patriotic program at GE Aviation’s Learning Centre in Evendale. More than 75 Korean War veterans have accepted invitations, making the event one of the nation’s largest armistice anniversary commemorations.

It’s important to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the cease-fire, because by the 70th or 75th, the ranks of Korean War heroes will be significantly diminished. Approximately 5.8 million Americans served in the 1950-53 conflict, roughly one-third the number of men and women who wore the uniform in World War II.

In addition to remarks from executives of The Urology Group and GE, guest speakers will include Dr. Doug Lantry, curator at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force; Dr. Bae Suk Lee, a Korean-American who escaped North Korea and fought alongside the U.S. Army; and Steve Maynard, who, 50 years after his father Jim served in the Korean War, commanded the USS Blue Ridge, flag-ship of the U.S. Seventh Fleet.

“The Urology Group is grateful for the opportunity to pay tribute to our many patients who are members of this age group,” Dr. Gary Kirsh, president of The Urology Group, said. “The Korean War has been called the forgotten war but we want these heroes to know we’ll never forget their service and sacrifice.”

“GE is honored to host and celebrate heroes from the Korean War in our Learning Centre, where we proudly display the J47, the jet engine that powered the Korean War’s iconic F-86 Sabre,” said Scott Williams, GE executive and co-leader of GE Aviation’s Veterans Network. “We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Korean War veterans, as well as all those who have served and continue to serve the cause of freedom.”
