Announcing the 2015 KWVA Revisit Korea Tours:
Korean War Veterans & family members,
Since 1975 the KVA, (Korea Veterans Association - Seoul) has hosted
Korean War Veterans and their families by providing Free Hotel accommodations, bus tours of Seoul, Inchon and
the DMZ, and all meals in Korea. The Land of Morning Calm remembers and sincerely appreciates all veterans who
fought and sacrificed in securing freedom and democracy for the Republic of Korea. After selling out all three
revisits in 2014, the Korean government is forecasting to continue discounting the veterans & family
members/companion airfare for the 65th Anniversaries in 2015.
There will be major ceremonies throughout 2015
commemorating the important battles and campaigns of 1950. Demand was great in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014
