National convention, october 2-5, 2005, in bossier - Korean War ...

May 30th. (Ms. Huh is a Korean by birth.) Also invited were Mr.

and Mrs. Greg Anderson, Director of the VA Medical Center

Volunteers Services, and Mr. Wayne Pfeffer, who is acting VA

Medical Center Director.

We had a wonderful celebration of “remembering Korea” and

receiving the “thank you” of a grateful people for whom the

United States, the Koreans themselves, and our allies fought to

free the Republic of Korea. We thanked them for showing their

appreciation and for what they had accomplished with their gift

of freedom.

For us, this was a most memorable Memorial Day, one in

which “they remembered.”

Graybeards members who attended included Jack Armacost,

Earl Buckler, William Flannery, Harry Foreman, Ewell Fryman,

Robert Hyndman, James Marshall, Bobby McCoun, James

McKinney, Robert Niles, Stanley Schwartz, W.B. Stiles, Carl

Tungate, Bennett Wasserman, and many wives and relatives.

Also in attendance was Dave Lane (American Legion Service

Officer).

Everyone enjoyed a great meal. At our request, Mr. Yongbeom

Hur sang the Korean anthem, accompanied by his fellow

Koreans.
