Chapter 188 Korean War Association

Posted on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 1:47 am

David Litz, Commander of Chapter 188, and the officers of Chapter 188 present a grant to Michael Gonzales of the Orlando VA Medical Center Fisher House. The Orlando Fisher House organization provides free lodging for family and care givers of veterans who are receiving inpatient treatment at the VA Orlando Medical Center.
The Chapter also continues to support the rehabilitation and transitional organization. This organization operates a rehabilitation and transitional program for homeless veterans who live in homeless camps in the Ocala National Forest and elsewhere in Lake County to return to society.
Chapter 188 Korean War Veterans of South Lake County, FL has supported these organizations for many years from donations we receive from our Rose of Sharon campaign that we hold each year at our local Publix Supermarkets. We would like to thank the South Lake community and the local Publix Supermarkets for their continual support of Chapter 188’s mission to aid homeless veterans and veterans’ families in their time of need.
We invite all veterans who served in the armed forces of the United States during the Korean War or the armistice period to date to join our Chapter and be a part of our mission to aid homeless veterans and assist their families.
Our chapter meets at the Lake David City Building in Groveland. For information on joining and meeting times, please contact David Litz, Commander, Chapter 188 Korean War Association for South Lake County at 352.536.9022.
