GETTING INVOLVED IN THIS BUSINESS
A Native of Norton, Virginia, I first took on the quartermaster inventory at the National Convention in 1996. It was hard and diffult getting the business going. In addition, that same years I was elected to the Board of Directors. Today we have established a list of over 4000 veterans across the USA. I am so happy that I got involved because it has allowed me to meet and speak with veterans who served in Korea during and after the war ESTABLISHING MANY GOOD FRIENDS.
Returning home, I took a job in the coal mines of Virginia because my Dad worked there all his life. After a few short months I went to Florida and college on my GI Bill. After getting my degree I went to work as a Property Insurance Adjuster in Melbourne, Florida and then Management with a major insurance company and worked in that field until retirement. I love helping Veterans and my chruch. I thank God dailey for His blessings on my life. I love my country, I kneel for Jesus and stand for the National Anthem.
THANKS FOR A BETTER FUTURE
My decision to become involved with the Korean War Veterans Association came about because of a man named Harley Koon whom I felt was leading us in the wrong direction. I wanted to help and serve my fellow comrades who fought the communist enemy and suffered the cold and hot climate of Korea. I am proud to say that I have been a part of those hero's whom I shall never forget. Today I think of those I served with and thank God I got to come home and establish a nice career and a home in the mountains of Virginia. So thank you my friends in helping me build a better future.
