Marine vets WANT YOU to help Korean War vets

The Chicago MARINES are working with a consortium of partnered veteran organizations and in collaboration with various local community groups in Illinois to desperately locate KWV of the 1950-1953 campaign for this event.  We hope this Flyer helps remind us to our aging group of America’s Forgotten veterans that only ended the Conflict in the Korean Peninsula with the Armistice signing on July 27, 1953.

In addition Marine veterans in Illinois, is bringing needed awareness for sponsors to the new US Congressional House Bill HR-5222, awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to all combat Korean War veterans, to include each of the sixteen UN-Allied member nations that sent combat troops in support to the ROK region.
