Sixty-two residents of the New Hampshire Veterans Home are being recognized for their service in the Korean War. Army Lieutenant Colonel Dennis Snelling, representing the US Department of Defense’s 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Commemoration Committee, awarded medals and certificates at the Tilton home on Tuesday. Eight members of the group are women. The war in Korea, authorized in 1950 by President Harry Truman to stop Communist aggression from the north, went on for a little more than three years. It ended with signing of an armistice on July 27, 1953.
