January Meeting 2022 Star Fort


THE STAR FORT CHAPTER OF MOAA HEAR ABOUT THE KOREAN WAR HONOR FLIGHT!

Mr. Lewis Vaughn talked to The Star Fort Chapter of MOAA recently. He served six years in the Army Tank Corps. He served tours in both Europe and Asia, mostly in Korea. He was honorably discharged in October 1956. He was elected to the National Board of Directors of the Korean War Veterans Association (KWVA) in 2015 and served until 2018.
He talked about how cold it was in Korea (-30 degrees Fahrenheit) and when they came home, there were no parades or celebrations like after WWII. That is why it is called the “Forgotten War”. The new Korean War Memorial, called the WALL OF REMEMBRANCE, is to be dedicated on July 27, 2022. July 27, 1953 was Armistice Day for the Korean War, thus July 27 2022 the of the WALL OF REMEMBRANCE will be dedicated in Washington, DC. Mr. Vaughn is working on putting together a Korean War Honor Flight for all Korean War Veterans from South Carolina.
If you are a Korean War veteran or know a Korean War veteran, they can contact Mr. Vaughn by email at lvaughn1146@gmail.com or contact Rosalind Burke at the Greenwood Veterans Center (864)450-9268. Mr. Vaughn needs this information soon so he can pass it to the KWVA to coordinate the flights and other logistics.

Also, Carol Scales, past President swore in our two new officers, Mike Coleman and Joe Roberts. Mike is our new Secretary and Joe is the new Treasurer.
