This was done in grand style, with the arrival of Korean destroyer ship ROKS DAE JO YEONG and auxiliary ship ROKS HWA CHEON, under the command of Admiral Jang Soo-hong, at the Old Port of Montreal. They arrived on a beautiful Saturday morning with a full complement, with families, veterans, sightseers and navy buffs came to watch the docking and to visit onboard.
Once onboard, the media and public watched the welcoming ceremony that included speeches, a Korean navy band and the presentation of flowers by children dressed in hanbok. We then toured the two vessels and ended up in the galley, where we were treated to and authentic Korean navy style lunch. It was a poignant celebration that will be remembered by all.
