SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#ChairmanChoHyunJoon—Hyosung
(KRX:004800) employees cleaned up Seoul National Cemetery, a resting
place for fallen service members, veterans and patriots, about a week
before June which is “Memorial Month” in Korea.
“We must never forget the soldiers who gave their lives for our
country,” Hyosung Chairman Cho Hyun-Joon has often said, “I will try to
pass down their spirit of sacrifice to the future generations.”
About 15 Hyosung employees visited Seoul National Cemetery in
Dongjak-gu, Seoul, on May 29, prayed at the memorial, laid flowers on
graves, cleaned tombstones and removed weeds.
Hyosung established sisterhood relationship with Seoul National Cemetery
in 2014, and has since cleaned up one of its sections twice a year. The
cemetery maintains sisterhood ties with companies, each of them tasked
with taking care of a section.
Section 9 assigned to Hyosung contains graves of 627 service members and
police officers who were killed in action or died on duty.
Meanwhile, Hyosung has sponsored a military project to improve the
living conditions of war veterans since 2012 in a bid to honor patriots
and express its gratitude to them.
