As a token of their appreciation, they presented to each of us a very handsome vest and a beautiful scarf bearing heart shaped flags representing each country that participated in the War. We wish to thank them for their thoughtful gifts.

     Also, at our October meeting, Commander Clark informed everyone that our friends at the Republic of Korea Embassy delivered to us a supply of beautiful beverage cups engraved with the words "We Go Together" in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean War. Each Chapter member in attendance was given one of the cups.
