The United States Government, State Governments, Veterans Organizations, private mints and individuals have a long tradition of striking commemorative medals or ribbons to recognize and honor specific military victories, historical events and military service to our great Republic. Until the 20th Century the United States did not issue military service medals or ribbons recognizing service by veterans in the different wars, battles, campaigns or other significant military events. Commemorative medals and ribbons reflect typical American ingenuity and spirit, where local government, veterans associations and private leadership step forward to facilitate honoring service and deeds the federal government fails to recognize. Although unofficial in nature and usually struck by private mints or associations, commemorative medals and ribbons provide a very tangible memento to honor all veterans and families for their service and sacrifice. Criteria: For all who served in the Korea War.
