Korean War Vets Honored By Local Church

The Tyler Korean Baptist Church celebrated it's 19th anniversary Sunday.

As part of the celebration the congregation honored a group of local veterans who fought in the Korean War.

The East Texas Chapter of the Korean War Veterans Association has 56 members.  Many of them were on hand Sunday to accept a plaque, and praise from church pastor Bong Hee Han.

Following the ceremony the group was invited to attend a luncheon, held at the church.

Church leaders say it's important for the next generation of Koreans to acknowledge the significance of the war.
