  • 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.
  • In recent days we have become aware that their are Veterans in our community that have recently died and have not been provided with an opportunity to receive a military ceremony in their memory.  Chapter 189 of the KWVA does not think that this is proper, and have decided to present a small final military ceremony for any Veteran that requests it. If you know of a Veteran that needs a final military ceremony please contact Bob McGuire at 386.323.6401 and we will attempt to get that request fulfilled.
