St. Louis, MO –

Sunday will mark 50 years since the end of the Korean War. Some St. Louis area veterans will note the armistice anniversary Saturday morning in Forest Park.

A memorial to area residents who served in Korea has stood in the park since 1989 but tomorrow vets will take time to remember those who never returned. KWMU's Tom Weber prepared this report.
