Veterans' Affairs New Zealand is looking for veterans who served in the Korean War and are interested in going to commemorations in July to mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice in South Korea.

To be eligible to attend the commemoration, veterans must have qualified for either the Korea Medal, the UN Service Medal clasp Korea, or the NZ General Service Medal (Korea 1954-57), and have been attested into the New Zealand Armed Forces at the time of qualifying service.

Up to 30 New Zealand veterans will be drawn by ballot and funded to attend the commemorations.

To register contact Veterans' Affairs New Zealand, by freephone on 0800 483 8372 or email veterans@xtra.co.nz by February 28.
