May 12, 2023 was a great day as KACAGW members thanked and honored Korean War Veterans with a special Korean meal at two locations: the Armed Forces Retirement Home (AFRS) in Washington, DC, and the Korean War Veterans Association (KWVA) Chapter 313 in Winchester, VA. Long day of travel, but doesn't compare with the sacrifices of the veterans. The thanks and appreciation from the veterans made it all worthwhile. 

In Korea, May is family month, a time to thank parents (Mothers & Fathers). US Korean War veterans are also considered “family” as Korea would not be free today without them. We are visiting Korean War veterans at two locations to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Korea-US Alliance by cooking favorite Korean dishes together,  sharing a meal and stories, and thanking them for their service and sacrifices.

Inviting all to join us in Washington DC today to celebrate Emancipation Day.

Youth students from the MBA Majest Martial Arts School performed a Taekwondo demonstration Friday evening at Capital One Arena, Washington, DC during the halftime show of the Washington Wizards vs. the Toronto Raptors basketball game. This was a great opportunity to showcase the increasingly popular K-Sport of Taekwondo to the mainstream DC society. Congratulations to all the students and Grandmaster Seung-Min Choi on their outstanding performance. Paula Park, former president of the Korean American Association of Greater Washington, came to the arena with fellow members to support this event. For those interested in learning Taekwondo, MBA Majest Martial Arts School is located at 21680 Ridgetop Circle #150, Sterling, VA 20166.

Membership is open to any adult person of Korean descent living in the Greater Washington geographical area (District of Columbia, Maryland, Northern Virginia).
