Tell America - Scholarship Program

Relatively little is known about the Korean War. Less still is known about the fact that U.S. troops are still stationed in Korea. Our Tell America Program strives to overcome this by going into schools and other places to tell America about the Korean War and what it truly meant to freedom. (scroll down this page for articles on this topic)

If your school is not on this list, we welcome you to invite us to come, we offer a special incentive to your students who participate by writing an essay. Please contact us.
