KOREAN WAR VETERANS ASSOCIATION NEWS
The monthly meeting of the KWVA, Indiana Chapter One will be held on April 13, 2002 at the American Legion Post 82 on Harris Road. Breakfast will be at 7:30am; the meeting will begin at 9am. Call Allen Clendenen (260-489-1724) for information about placing a brick on our walkway at our beautiful Shrine on O’Day Road, honoring a special Veteran. What a great tribute for Fathers Day.
You still have time to contact Jim Snyder (260-484-9255) before school is out to have our Veterans come to your child’s or grandchild’s school and present our Tele-America program. It is a wonderful program about the Korean War and why it is no longer the Forgotten War.

Ken E. Meek, past Legion #241 Commander, active in Veterans Organizations over the years, worthy friend of the Veteran, collector of history – they will be missed, but always remembered.

HONOR AND RESPECT THE VETERAN. How do we give them the honor and respect that they have earned and is a right due them when our heavenly Father calls them home to stand the eternal watch? Each and every Veteran, whether they belong to a veterans organization or not, is due a military service (if they or their family so desire).
But whom do they ask? The funeral director is a good place to start. Or call an AMERICAN LEGION, VFW, or AMVETS Post. One of the Post Officers will be more than willing to give assistance.
So when the time comes, call a Veteran. It is our honor and ongoing duty to help provide the final honor and respect to our brothers and sisters.
State Honor and Color Guard Commander
