Korean MemorialKorean War & Korea Defense Service Veterans, Lake Co. (FL), Chapter 169

Welcomes and Invites all Korea Defense Veterans (KDV) to Join our Ranks

If you served in Korea anytime from the signing of the Cease-Fire on July 27, 1953 to now we'd like to talk to you. To tell you about the KWVA at the National U.S. level, at the state level in your state, and especially at our Chapter 169 level (Lake County FL).

We are the Korean Veterans of Lake County, FL, and surrounding area. Our goals are to: organize veterans who served in any branch of the U.S. Military during the Korean War and those who served in Korea anytime after the war (Korea Defense Veterans--KDV); promote recognition of the Korean War and its Veterans; educate the public, especially our youth, about the Korean War, and its impact on their lives and their freedom; and more. Please come visit us at one of our meetings; we especially welcome all Veterans who served in Korea anytime after the war..

Frankly, we need your assistance. Mostly we are in our middle 80's and find it difficult to carry on our Chapter. And we really need you, who served in Korea, to come to our aid to keep our Chapter functional -- supporting our disadvantaged fellow veterans, telling youth and adults about Korea and what it meant then and now, and raising moneys to do these things.

We think you need us to broaden the scope of our Tell America programs that will inform our youth about your sacrifices in Korea.

We invite you to come to one of our meetings.
