Vets Forming Low Country Korean War Association

Korean War veterans are joining together in the Low Country. They would like to form an official chapter of the Korean War Veterans Association in Beaufort, South Carolina.

Today, more than 20 veterans from around the area gathered for their first meeting. They elected officers and are on their way to becoming one of South Carolina's three chapters.

"I think it's important for veterans and for the community to recognize the veterans, and this is just one way it can be done," said chapter commander Charlotte Ayers.

The chapter is open to veterans who served in Korea after 1950. If you'd like more information, contact Ayers at 843.524.8675.
