In a partnership with the Republic of Korea, South Dakota honors Korean War veterans with an "Ambassador for Peace" medal in a ceremony at the Capitol.

Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh sits down with Korean War vet Seb Axtmann, as well as representatives from the South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs and the Republic of Korea to discuss the partnership between the two countries and what the American military presence and partnership means for Koreans.
