On Saturday, July 27, Rep. Charles B. Rangel will be recognized for his service in the Korean War as President Barack Obama delivers remarks at the Korean War Veterans Memorial to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the signing of the armistice.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will join the president for the program, which will include wreath-laying ceremonies, special tributes to Korean War veterans and recognition of the United Nations Allies that provided combat troops, medical teams and other support.

Rangel, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star Medal recipient, is the only combat veteran among the four remaining members of Congress who served in the Korean War.
