Hannah Kim, a Friend of the KWVA, heading up an effort to pass a Bill in
The Korean War Veterans Recognition Act (HR2632)...
A bill that will add National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day, July 27,
to the list of days on which the American flag should especially be displayed
UPDATE... I HAVE
Our bill, HR2632 is scheduled for a vote on the floor --
THIS TUESDAY JULY 14.
Click the below link for my updated letter with appropriate
changes (there's no need to urge Majority Leader Hoyer to schedule our vote or call the Judiciary committee,
I'm pretty confident it will pass, but I want it to pass
with HIGH FLYING COLORS (lots of co-sponsors!). Please spread the word -- ONE DAY can make a HUGE difference. Your
members calling their Reps' offices tomorrow all day long can REALLY change the numbers.
CONGRATULATIONS to a long overdue RECOGNITION!

**PS I've already begun working on the
SENATE (two months ago)! I'll keep you apprised. Thank you!!
In her quest to express their gratitude, she and her group
have been belaboring to pass this bill in Congress and they are WRITING TO REQUEST YOUR HELP.

I think this is important to all Korean Veterans and we
should support this group's try at getting this bill passed for displaying the flag at half mast on our
Armistice date of 7/27 for recognition of those who sacrificed their lives during our war.
Note: this is NOT a request for money, but for a little
bit of your time!
