Vice President Dick Cheney to Speak at the 53d Anniversary Observance of the Signing of the Korean War Ceasefire, at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC

We are pleased to announce that Vice President Dick Cheney will be the principal speaker at the annual Korean War Veterans Commemoration on the Mall in Washington, DC at 1000, Thursday, 27 July 2006.

Since security will be tight for this Nationally televised event, it is highly recommended that you get to the Korean War Veterans Memorial about 0900 for good seating. (Pre ceremony patriotic music will be playing). Parking is also scarce around our Memorial so public transportation is strongly encouraged!

In addition to the US veterans and their families, there will be a delegation of about 50 Korean War Veterans present from Seoul Korea.

This appearance of the Vice President is to speak to and honor ALL KOREAN WAR VETERANS!

The White House called us, KWVA, as the Washington Area rep. of KWVA. It's the only association/organization that they, and the VA, recognize that nationally represents Korean War Veterans.

Sincere Fraternal Regards,
Warren Wiedhahn
Director, Washington DC Representative, KWVA/USA
