We are the Korean Veterans of Central FL including Lake, Marion and Sumter Counties and The Villages. Our goal is to organize veterans who served in any branch of the U.S. Military during the Korean War and those who served in Korea anytime after the war to date (Korea Defense Service Veterans). Please join us at one of our monthly meetings.
Our Chapter is planning on starting a breakfast social meeting of Veterans at Bob Evans Restaurant; “off Rt. 466, at 2199 Parr Drive, The Villages on Oct. 19th at 9 am. This is a pay your own breakfast event. Please email; email@example.com to give your response and interest in joining fellow veterans to make new friends and to hear / share your experiences serving in Korea. If we get a good turnout, we could make it a weekly event. Many other veteran organizations are doing this on different days and it is well attended. Thank you, Jack Cenkus, Chapter 169 Secretary
