To my Heroes, the Korean War Veterans and Your Descendants,

It is my greatest pleasure and honor to announce the 2nd Convention of KWV Youth Corps in Washington D.C. from July 25 to 28, this year. The KWV Youth Corps (KWV YC) was launched on July 26, 2013 in Washington D.C. when we gathered in nation’s capital to celebrate the 60th Anniversaries of the US-Korea Alliance and the Armistice. The KWV Digital Memorial Foundation formed KWV YC, which is a KWV descendant organization (your grandchildren or great grandchildren in high school and colleges in their 20s and 30s) in order to keep your legacy. With supports and encouragements from the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs and Korean companies, both KWVDM Foundation and KWV YC will invite about 100 descendants of KWVs to a 4-day program in the Hyatt Arlington Hoteland engage in several activates that will educate them to preserve your memories and promote the legacy of the Korean War and your sacrifices (Please refer to the program agenda)

The KWV Digital Memorial Foundation will cover every expense including hotel rooms, meals, D.C. transportation, and other program fees with two exceptions: each participant pay 50% of their transportation cost and a registration fee of $50.
