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.
If you are a Korean War veteran, you are invited to participate in an international effort to record an oral history of the Korean War by those who experienced it. A video library is being created and catalogued, and you now have a unique opportunity to carry your legacy forward to future generations. Taping begins Nov 2nd.
