Medal Presentations

Old Tappan resident Cole Lee was on hand at the 8/16/21 Mayor and Council meeting to help Councilman Jin Yhu present Korean War medals to Dottie Gillespie on behalf of her husband and brother, Ronald and Robert Gillespie and Mayor John Kramer on behalf of his brother, Karl Kramer.

The Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs give this medal to veterans who served in helping the Republic of Korea (S. Korea) remain independent from their aggressors in the North.  Mr. Lee contacted the Korean Embassy regarding the distribution of these medals to any Korean Veterans in Old Tappan. Upon vising the Veterans memorial at Oakes Park he found that only a few survivors were still around.
Thank you Mr. Lee and the Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs for honoring these veterans.
