Korea to learn Australia’s attitude towards veterans

Australia provides a great example for Korea in their attitude and treatment of veterans, according to the chairman of the Korean Veterans Association, Kim Jin-ho. 

Chairman Kim participated in the Sydney Anzac day parade on 25 April and met with the chairman of the Australian Veterans Association.

“I am envious of the Australian government and citizen’s impressive attitude towards their security and military,” Mr Kim said. 

“Even though Australia is not threatened by war, they celebrate those who have fought for their country on Anzac Day. South Korea is currently in an armistice status with North Korea, and the citizens should be more aware of those protecting their country. Looking at this, I believe that Korea should learn from Australia,” he added. 

He was also impressed by the high participation rate of the Anzac day parade, which was held from 9am to 1pm in the Sydney CBD, from Martin Place to Hyde Park. 

Mr Kim was joined by 60 South Korean veterans at the parade, which included veterans from the Korean War. 

The participants walked with the Korean flag, as they were celebrated with praise and applause. 

However, the number of participants is decreasing every year due to their deteriorating health. 

“It was a meaningful event. I do wish to see all the members next year,” the chairman of the Korean War Veterans Association Baek Nak-Yoon said. 

“More veterans should be participating, but the sad fact is that many are in hospital,” he added.
