The 2004 Cattle Festival is dedicated to the Veterans of the Korean War.  Because of the bravery and sacrifice of these incredible men and women, the forces of Democracy and Freedom met the challenges of the Cold War which would later lead to ultimate victory against the forces of Communism.  They are truly American heroes.
