This gift was produced to cap the three-year Korean War 60th Commemorative period, with 2013 decreed by the United States Congress as the “Year of the Korean War Veteran.”
Funding for the large-scale gift was provided by an alliance of South Korean public and private sectors, led by the Ministry of Patriot and Veterans Affairs and the Federation of Korean Industries.
Sixty years after the signing of the armistice agreement, Korea is now one of the most powerful economies in the world, having made the impressive rise from a donor recipient nation to a giving nation with less than 3.5% unemployment, The Federation of Korean Industries chose to become the funding source behind the largest gift of its kind to ever be presented to all veterans of a designated war period.
“I fully agree that this project is worthwhile to pursue for the sake of strengthening the U.S.Korea relationship,” expresses Mr. Jin Haeng Chung, President of the Hyundai Motor Group based in Seoul. “We hope this opportunity will help to strengthen.the alliance and cooperation between our two countries.”
