KWVA / KVA Chapter 299 Accomplishments

We first established as the KDVA department of Massachusetts in late 2002 after the Korea Defense Service Medal was passed into law. We officially incorporated in 2003. From 1999-2002, many members of the Chapter were actively working with the Korea Defense Veterans of America headquartered in New Jersey getting co-sponsors for the Korea Defense Service Medal. We later became the Korea Veterans of America and then became an offical Chapter of the KWVA in February of 2005.

The Chapter has become the largest Chapter in the Korean War Veterans Association. It also performs all Color Guard duties for the Korea War Veterans Association at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day and Memorial Day. The Chapter has erected 5 Memorials and Markers honoring Korea War and Korea Defense Service Veterans. It has also sponsored numerous State Bills and helped the KWVA obtain their Federal Chartership on June 28, 2008.

Chapter 299 has had several members elected as KWVA National Officers

Chapter 299 has had several members selected as KWVA Nation Committee Chairmen.

Chapter 299 was the first Korea Veterans Organization in the country to put up a monument honoring all veterans who have served in Korea.

Chapter 299 was the first Korea Veterans Organization to have a State Bill (Mass. Senate Bill 2136) passed honoring all post war veterans who served in Korea.

Chapter 299 members were actively involved in getting sponsorship for the KDSM.

Chapter 299 members were actively involved in getting sponsorship for Maine Bill LD 1148 (KSDM on Maine License Plate).

Chapter 299 members were actively involved in getting sponsorship for Pennsylvania Bill HB 2295 (KSDM on Pennsylvania License Plate).

Chapter 299 members were actively involved in getting sponsorship for Minnesota Bill  SF 2540 (KSDM on Minnesota License Plate).


The Korea Veterans of America have decided to join their brother veterans in the Korea War Veterans Association. We did this to show unity between all Korea veterans and to help work on a federal charter for all Korea Veterans in the country. The Korea Veterans of America will be the biggest KWVA Chapter of Korea War and Korea Service Veterans in the country. We will be Chapter 299. We want other KWVA Chapters throughout the country to emulate the Korea Veterans of America by integrating younger Korea Veterans into their chapters.
