THE BURLINGTON OFFICE OF VETERANS SERVICES advises clients as to the availability of state and federal services and benefits to which they may be entitled. This office is the gateway for Massachusetts Department of Veterans Services' and Federal Veterans Affairs' benefits in order to provide financial assistance to all needy, eligible veterans, surviving spouses and their dependents. This office also coordinates public events such as Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs. On Memorial Day this office and volunteers place more than 3000 flags on the graves of veterans interred in a Town of Burlington cemetery.
Attention: Korean War veterans who may be eligible to receive the Korean Ambassador for Peace Medal.
The medal is an expression of appreciation from the South Korean government to US servicemen and women for their sacrifices, service, and friendship.
To be eligible, veterans must have served in Korea between June 25, 1950, and July 27, 1953.
There is no cost to veterans or their families.
The commemorative medal may be awarded posthumously; surviving spouses are encouraged to contact our office.
There is an application that must be filled out along with providing your DD-214 (discharge from Active duty papers).
