SEOUL, Republic of Korea -- A U.S. veterans memorial ceremony was held at the Seoul Foreigners Cemetery Nov. 6, to honor U.S. heroes from World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

The foreigners cemetery was originally for missionaries and their families who came to Korea. However, among the 143 graves, there are more than 20 that belong to American veterans.

Eighth U.S. Army Deputy Commanding General Maj. Gen. Robert Williamson attended the ceremony. The participants visited the cemetery to pay their respects to the veterans and missionaries.

They also visited Yanghwajin Hall, which pays tribute to missionaries.
