The Korean War Veterans Assn., Indiana Chapter One has a wonderful ‘Tell America Program’ and would like to present it to your school students. They want to tell about the Korean War so that it will no longer be referred to as the “Forgotten War.” They can also give information on the special Holidays (July 4th, Memorial Day, and most important Veterans Day) and how they originated. Please give Jim Snyder (260) 484-9255 or Lynn Shady (260) 484-5278 a call for this wonderful program.
