Every year since July 27, 2008, Remember727 has commemorated the Armistice Day on which the ceasefire treaty was signed on July 27, 1953.

Remember727, together with the Korean Cultural Center, hosts its 7th Annual Armistice Day Commemoration & Peace Vigil to remember the Korean War and the ceasefire agreement that was signed on July 27th.

Join us in the lighting of the candles at 7:27pm around the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, as we pay tribute to the “Forgotten Heroes” and hope for peace on the Korean Peninsula, and where conflict persists.
