Appreciation From Veterans History Project

December 1 2018, during a Frederick County Veterans History Project (FCVHP) luncheon, Priscilla Rall, FCVHP Director, thanked Chapter 142 with a Certificate of Appreciation for their participation in the project and the Chapter pledged $1,000 in funding for 2019. The FCVHP is in partnership with the Library of Congress Veterans History Project in an effort to record first-hand knowledge from veterans, civilian supporters and family members living in the Frederick County, MD region. The Chapter's participation insures the Korean War will not be forgotten.

Veterans Histroy Program

Chapter 142 has supported and participated in the Frederick County Veterans History Project (FCVHP) over many years. The FCVHP is a partner in the Library of Congress Veterans History Project, collecting oral stories from veterans, civilian supporters and family members living in the Frederick County, MD region. The collection also includes stories from veterans living elsewhere. The majority of historical records are on video though some are on audio medium.

Priscilla Rall is the director of the FCVHP and has interviewed over 100 local veterans, many from our own Chapter. There are write-ups in The Frederick News-Post and The Catoctin Banner about this very important and timely work she is doing.

On June 3, 2017, the Chapter was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for our support of the Project. If you would like to help out, contact Chapter 142 and we can connect you with Priscilla. To see more of what the Veterans History Project records, watch the Vimeo Video below.

National Unification Advisory Council Honors Chapter 142

On October 10th, 1013, the National Unification Advisory Council (NUAC), the South Korean President's forum for establishing and implementing policy towards the democratic and peaceful unification between the North and South, invited two KWVA Chapters to be honored at this event. The two Chapters so honored were Chapter #100 of Northern Virginia, and Chapter #142 of Frederick, Maryland. All invited members were extremely honored to be a part of this memorable ceremony. The guest speakers included The Honorable Charles Rangel (a Purple Heart Korean War Veteran), and The Honorable Gerald E. Connolly, both in the U.S. House of Representatives; Secretary Edward Chow, Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs; and Chapter #142's Colonel William Weber (also a Purple Heart recipient). All presentations were extremely interesting and enlightening to Chapter attendees. The evening was complimented with an exceptionally delicious dinner and the presentation of absolutely one of the most beautiful plaques our Chapters have ever received; the picture below does not come near to giving it the justice it so richly deserves.

Members from the Colonel William E. Weber KWVA Chapter #142 in attendance from left to right were Kyutae Chang, Richard Kim, Bill Weber, Wendell Murphy, Marty Goge, Bob Eader, Jim Miller, Reggie Kephart, Tony Malavenda, and Tony Marra.
