This year is winding down and we've had a lot to deal with concerning the virus. Since June,  we've been able to hold our meetings and the attendance has been remarkable. At our October 

 meeting we had 39 members and 8 guests. The guests were members of the Council of Korean Churches of Greater Washington. 

They came, bringing gifts for we Veterans, vests and handkerchiefs which were passed out to those in attendance. If you were not able to attend and want to receive the gifts, let me know at 540-837-2657 or email declark@gmail.com and I will attempt  to see that you receive these gifts or one of the extremely nice mugs that the Korean Embassy sent to us.

     Coming up on Veterans Day, November 11th, of is a ceremony at our Korea War Memorial in DC. The ceremony is in recognition of all Veterans, but after the ceremony, plaques will be presented to those Veterans who served in Korea area from June 1950, and July 31, 1953. I submitted the names of 37 of our members who served during that time. If I missed anyone, I apologize. Our bus will leave the tasker Rd Walmart @ 11:00 am. If you would like to go and have not signed up, give me a call. Ceremony is at 2:00 pm and after the ceremony, we will then have dinner at the Mission Barbeque in Gainesville, VA.
