CERRITOS -- The South Korean Navy Band will offer a free concert Monday for Korean War veterans.

The free concert will take place at 7 p.m. at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, but public tickets are unavailable. Stand-by tickets, however, are available before the concert.

Korean War Veterans will make a special entrance at the concert, which also will feature Korean traditional and pop music, Tae kwon do demonstrations and a color guard presentation.

In July 2010, representatives from the South Korean Navy visited Cerritos to honor Korean War veterans for their service. Also at that time, the South Korean Navy Band performed a concert at the Cerritos Center.

The South Korean Navy Band's appearance this year is part of a Los Angeles visit by the South Korean Navy's Cruise Training Task Group, their 10th visit since 1980.

The South Korean Navy will hold receptions Sunday and Monday onboard two of its ships, the ROK Chungmugong Yi Sun Shin and ROK Dae Chung, that will be docked at the Port of Los Angeles.
