have done in recent years,
fourteen members attended and
participated in the “Veterans
Tribute Day’’ ceremony at the
2014 Shenandoah County Fair in
Woodstock. VA.
short parade in which veterans
from various VSOs, including us
and cadets from the Massanutten
Military Academy, marched to the
filled-to-capacity grandstands,
where we honored the Colors.
This was followed by a program
with a speaker who honored all
veterans of all wars, plus all our
young men and women who are
defending our country today.
Our presence at the fair was an
excellent “Tell America” opportunity, as we were able to meet and
talk to many fair visitors and to
tell them more about the Korean
War and how our involvement in it
and our support of the Korean
people in the years since the
signing of the cease fire has
helped the Republic of Korea
become the thriving and dynamic
economy that its citizens enjoy
We also had the opportunity to
meet and recruit a number of
Korean War and Korean Defense
Veterans who are potential new
members of our Chapter.
