Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- It has been dubbed, "The Forgotten War." But area Korean War Veterans were anything but forgotten today.

A ceremony at the Fargo Air Museum honored local veterans that served during the three-year war. Each veteran received a medal for their service.

Speakers urged veterans and educators to teach about the war, which often doesn't get as much attention as World War Two and Vietnam.

Einar Lyng, Korean War Veteran, says, "it was a forgotten war so there was no big deal about coming home because we were supposedly in the way. It has been a long time coming but this did justice."
