Marty O'Brien was the member who coined this phrase appearing at the top of KWVA.org Web pages and at the bottom of the official KWVA letterhead: “Korean
War and Korea Service Veterans – A Continuity of Service in the Defense of Freedom” – first suggesting it to
me in 2003 when I was asked to run for President.
In Memoriam... Martin J. O'Brien, LR12697... June 28, 2006
He was first, foremost, and always my friend.
National President, KWVA/USA
