“I come to be with my buddies and to honor those that didn’t come back,” said Rev. Olgerts “Olgy” Sniedze, who served as a combat infantryman with the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team during the Korean War. “There are not that many Korean War veterans left,” he said before the wreath laying ceremony was held. “We always ask the ones who are here to come stand with us when we lay the wreath, but you’ll see there aren’t that many.”
