Peace Medals await presentation in Friday's ceremony.
Friday's large crowd stands for the national anthem, sung by Laura Ulrich from Montgomery Area High School.
Toomey arranged the ceremony to ensure that those who served in "The Forgotten War" are forgotten no longer.
The U.S. Senate seal, added to the Penn College podium, corroborates the significance of the day's proceedings.
State Sen. Gene Yaw (R-Loyalsock Township) is among the dignitaries speaking in recognition of the veterans' service.
Fred Agnoni, of South Williamsport, a teenage Army officer in the Korean War, holds his hat to his heart during the Reading of the Orders by retired Army Maj. Gen. James Joseph. Agnoni is standing between fellow veterans Richard E. Barkman (left), of Jersey Shore, and Edward E. Adams, of Muncy.
The senator offers congratulations and appreciation.
