KOREAN WAR VETERANS ASSOCIATION INDIANA CHAPTER ONE MEETING

The November meeting of the KWVAIC#1 will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2003. There will be a time change from 9am to 8am due to the Veterans Day parade that morning. We will also vote for the new officers for the year 2004. Bring your spouses and friends and join us at the meeting and go to the parade with us.

VETERANS APPRECIATED

When the Veterans of the Korean and Vietnam Conflicts returned home there were no welcome home signs or parades, due to the public sentiment against the wars at that time. So it was very encouraging to see that the troops returning from Iraq receive the honors that they richly deserved. “Freedom is not free. God Bless ALL Veterans.”

FLAG ETIQUETTE

(Taken from Let’s Be Right on Flag Etiquette)

Question: Who makes or changes the Flag rules?

Answer: Any rule or custom pertaining to the display of the flag of the United States of America, set forth in section 171-178 of this title, may be altered, modified, or repealed, or additional rules with respect thereto may be prescribed, by the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States, whenever he deems it to be appropriate or desirable; and any such alteration or additional rule shall be set forth in a proclamation.

Question: How are changes in the Flag Code made?

Answer: Since the Flag Code is Public Law, it may be changed by the passage of appropriate legislation in Congress, or, as provided in the law itself, by proclamation of the President.

REMEMBER: “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE!” SOMEONE HAD TO PAY FOR IT!

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN, who salutes the Flag.

 

Dear Waynedale News:

I don’t know if you saw this in the news but it really impressed me.‑Funny, our US Senate/House took 2 days off, as they couldn’t work. On the ABC evening news, it was reported that, because of the dangers from Hurricane Isabelle approaching Washington DC, the military members assigned the duty of guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier were given permission to suspend the assignment. They refused. “No way, Sir!” Soaked to the skin, marching in the pelting rain of a tropical storm, they said that guarding the Tomb was not just an assignment; it was the highest honor that can be afforded to a serviceperson. The tomb has been patrolled continuously, 24/7, since 1930. I’d be DAMN proud if this reached as many people as possible.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve. God Bless them.

Signed, A DAMN PROUD READER

 

ONE FLAG; ONE HEART; ONE NATION – EVERMORE!
