"If we are willing to fight to the death, we shall live, and if not, we shall perish." -Admiral Yi Sun-sin, Korean Navy Admiral. Admiral Yi commanded the Korean Navy during the Joseon Dynasty of 1592. He is best known for defeating a Japanese naval force with his fleet of Kobukson, or “Turtle Ships.” These ships effectively employed cannons and armor and were the world’s first “ironclad” battleships. As a people, the Koreans have persevered in maintaining their cultural heritage and homeland despite numerous attacks from neighboring countries throughout the centuries. Admiral Yi and those who have given their life for their country epitomize the courageous Korean spirit. We honor their memory.

Pears are one of the world's oldest cultivated and beloved fruits. In 5,000 B.C., Feng Li, a Chinese diplomat, abandoned his responsibilities when he became consumed by grafting peaches, almonds, persimmons, pears and apples as a commercial venture. In The Odyssey, the Greek poet laureate Homer lauds pears as a "gift of the gods." Pomona, goddess of fruit, was a cherished member of the Roman Pantheon and Roman farmers documented extensive pear growing and grafting techniques. Thanks to their versatility and long storage life, pears were a valuable and much-desired commodity among the trading routes of the ancient world.
