Published Tuesday June 25 2019

Ambassador Sylvie Lucas joined representatives of the 22 nations that had sent troops or other support for the Korean War under the UN flag for a wreath-laying ceremony at the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the Mall. Over 200 veterans and officials had gathered at the Memorial to honor the fallen. 89 Luxembourg soldiers had participated alongside Belgian troops in the war effort, in two consecutive deployments between December 1950 and early 1953. 2 Luxembourg soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice in Korea, while 17 Luxembourg troops were wounded.
