The remains of the late French soldier Jean le Houx, who fought in the Korean War as part of U.N. forces, were buried inside the DMZ in Cheorwon-gun County, Gangwon-do Province, in accordance with his last wishes. Le Houx joined the Korean War in December 1951 when he was 19 and was wounded twice in 1952 during the Battle of Hill Eerie. He served in Korea until July 31, 1953, a few days after the Armistice Agreement was signed. His ashes were escorted by a French delegation of 11 people, and the burial ceremony was attended by 50 people, including the French Ambassador to Korea, the French delegation and the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs officials.
