Fellow Korean War Veterans - The ROK government supports the "Peace Camp for Youth" program and we have received a KWVA-USA quota of twenty (20) for the 2019 program in Seoul, ROK. My own granddaughter participated in the 2012 camp and is still talking about how wonderful it was and the new friends she met from all the U.N. countries.
You can registration by downloading the Application Brochure for the July session this summer now! Applications will be received on a "First Come, First Served" basis. ALL EXPENSIVES in Korea are paid for and the applicant only pays for 1/2 (50%) of their domestic and international coach airfare. Military Historical Tours (MHT) provides an experienced tour leader to handle emergencies. The ROK health system is equal to any you will find in the USA!
Register Today as once the PCFY quotas are gone, they are gone!
