If you have ever served honorably in Korea as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces from Sept. 3, 1945 to the present, or served outside of Korea from June 25, 1950 to Jan. 31, 1955, then you are eligible to become a member of the Korean War Veterans Association (KWVA).

We visit hospitalized and shut-in veterans, participate in parades, participate in ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery and our National Korean War Memorial, with invites to the Korean Ambassador’s residence for lunch, and support the Veteran community at large.
