veterans in Daytona Beach.

we will announce a special presentation of the awesome
documentary "Chosin" filmed in Korea. This focal
point of American involvement in the Korean liberation
will have several local participants in

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

Bob McGuire at we would be pleased to set up a
presentation. We are in the process of preparing a
short brochuer on the history and impact of the
Korean War. If you know of any organization that
might be interested in receiving such a

receive a military ceremony in their memory.
Chapter 189 of the KWVA does not

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
