Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Senator Heidi Heitkamp hosted the event.

While honoring those who served in the Korean War, she also acknowledged rising tensions between the U.S. & North Korea today. The country's current leader is the grandson of the man who led the country in the 1950s.

And Heitkamp says we are confronting some of the same challenges today as we were back then.

Heitkamp says, "obviously this young man who has taken over North Korea is bound and determined to cause trouble and we need to call on the entire region to prevent that from happening."

Today, the United States cancelled a missile test, fearing it could exacerbate the tension with North Korea.
