A Special Celebration
May 26th at 12 noon in The Rotary Veterans Park, Cedar City will honoring our sister city Gapyeong, South Korea and thanking them for the generous Memorial Monument Stone which was shipped from South Korea.
This stone is in recognition and gratitude and to honor our soldiers that had a profound impact in the outcome of the Korean War. More specifically, May 26th marks the 70th anniversary of the incident, often referred to as the Miracle at Kapyong, which involved 240 men of the 213th—the predecessor of the 222nd.
The soldiers found themselves being advanced on by approximately 4,000 Chinese soldiers. By the end of the battle, all of the original Southern Utah troops who were part of the 213th were unharmed, with not one fatal casualty. This story and the significance behind what these brave men were able to accomplish is unimaginable. Please join us in recognizing this significant occasion and dedication of the Memorial Monument Stone on May 26th 2021 at noon.
