Korean War veterans may be eligible for the Korean Ambassador for Peace Medal. The medal is an expression of appreciation from the Korean government to US service men and women who served in the Korean conflict. To be eligible, the veterans must have served in country during the Korean War from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. It is also available for the veterans who have participated in UN peacekeeping operations until the end of 1955.

If a veteran was a Navy service member and had served abroad a naval vessel, the he or she is eligible if the naval vessel was assigned into Korean waters during 1950 to 1953 time frame. To establish eligibility, you need a copy of the veterans 214.

The commemorative medals may be awarded posthumously. The next of kin, such as the spouse or descendants may apply for the medal on behalf of a deceased veteran.

There are no costs or fees to the family or to the veteran.
