BOISE, Idaho — This morning a special ceremony at the Idaho State Veterans Home honored more than two dozen Korean War Veterans with medals and certificates of service.

The Ambassador for Peace commemorative medal is an expression of appreciation from the Korean government to American service men and women who served in the Korean war.

The medal was first presented to veterans as a special memento for those who returned to South Korea through the revisit program.

The honor has since expanded to veterans who are unable to visit Korea.
