Veteran an eyewitness to history

November 7, 2011

BLACKFOOT — As a member of the United Nations Military Armistice Commission, Monroe (Monte) Beach of Blackfoot was an eyewitness to history on July 27, 1953.
That was the day the fighting in the Korean War officially ended when Lt. Gen. William K. Harrison of the United States and his counterparts in the North Korean army and Chinese volunteers signed 18 tri-language documents at Panmunjom.
While that sight is stored in his memory banks, another more important one is stored there, too.
