Louisville hotel hosting Korean War vet reunion

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Korean War veterans will be in Louisville in late July for an annual reunion.

The Korean War Ex-POW Association is holding its 39th annual reunion at the Brown Hotel beginning July 27. The reunion attracts veterans, spouses, surviving widows and other family members to commemorate their service and honor those lost in the war.

Korea's Consulate General will be in attendance to present the awards to former prisoners of war. Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear has also been invited to attend the event.

The association was founded in 1976 by Bill Norwood, who was a prisoner of war from 1951 to 1953. Norwood is the current president.
