Canadian Korean War vet buried in S. Korea

Bereaved families of the late Canadian Korean War veteran John Robert Cormier bury his remains at the U.N. Memorial Cemetery in the southern port city of Busan on June 21, 2022. Cormier, who died in Canada in November last year, had expressed his wish before his death to be buried on South Korean soil. A total of 13 former U.N. troops, excluding Cormier, have been posthumously laid to rest in the cemetery. Soldiers from Canada and 15 other nations fought for South Korea against invading North Korea under the U.N. flag during the 1950-53 conflict. (Yonhap)
