(KSL News) -- Ceremonies took place around the country today, to mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the Korean War.

In Utah, dozens gathered to remember a war that was called "The Forgotten War".

A monument was dedicated in Memory Grove Park... in honor of the fallen and missing soldiers from the conflict. That includes 142 Utah service members who were killed.

The Korean War began with a surprise attack on June 25, 1950... when eight divisions, 60-thousand troops, and an armored brigade of the North Korean People's Army attacked the Republic of Korea.

The war lasted three years.
