August Meeting Notice

  • As know we are currently maintaining our Korean War display at the New Smyrna Beach Museum just off Canal Street. On July 27th we had a wonderful ceremony observing the 60th Anniversary of the end of hostilities in Korea and the dedication of the Korean War Museum Display. As part of that ceremony we were honored by proclamations from the City of New Smyrna Beach and from the Volusia County Council  If you have not visited the display we urge you to drop in and take a trip down memory lane. The Korean War exhibit will be available for viewing at the Smyrna Museum until 15 November 2013  We are very pleased at the items temporarily loaded to the Chapter to allow us to outfit the display.  If you have any time and would like to greet and meet people visiting the exhibit, just contact Bob McGuire at 386.323 6401 and we will put you on the payroll.      
  • On May 14th the May 2013 edition of the Kimchi Kourier Newsletter went to press. This is the second newsletter this of the year, for our Chapter, and it looks great.  Bob McGuire is the Newsletter Editor and we owe him a debt of gratitude for the newsletter and newspaper publicity he generates on the Chapters behalf.   The newsletters was sent out to all of our members through the US Postage System. If you have access to the web, connect to Chapter 189's website, at  and you can read a copy by going to the upper left hand corner of the home page and clicking on the "189 Newsletter" box.
  • During the past several months the Chapter has been presenting the "Tell America" Program to a number of organizations. As 2013 has been declared by Congress as the year of the Korean Veteran, we believe we will have additional request for this type of presentation in the near future. If you know an organization that might want to learn about the history of the Korean War please contact Bob McGuire at we would be pleased to set up a presentation.
