On 11 November this year, the Korean Government's Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs held their annual Turn Toward Busan Ceremony at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan.. The commemoration involved 70 UN veterans and family members including Major Ralph De Coste (Ret'd) who served as a corporal in Korea with the 59th Independent Field Squadron in Korea. The CMEA supported the visit by providing funds to allow Mr. De Coste to be accompanied by his grand-daughter, Tricia.
