  • For the last five months Chapter 189 have been maintaining our Korean War display at the New Smyrna Beach Museum just off Canal Street. On November 13th members of the Chapter disassembled the exhibit to permit the New Smyrna Beach Museum to reuse the exhibit space for their Christmas Displays. If you had donated items to the museum display, and have not picked them up, please let us know. We have recently received several offers to move the much of the contents of our Korean War Display to other locations, and we are considering the possibilities.
  •  At the November Meeting a slate of officers for KWVA Chapter 189 was voted on.  After the election several of the elected canidates requested modifications to the the original  changes before the roster was finalized with the Department of Florida.  We are current working on this problem and expect to have a revised roster and a vote on that slate at the December Meeting.
  • The current version of the "Kimchi Kourier", our Chapters newsletter, can be accessed by going to the upper left hand corner of the Website's 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. 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.
