The Counties Four VFW Post 10076 of Mount Airy wants veterans of the Korean War to know that the eligibility dates for their inclusion in a VFW post has been changed.
President Clinton signed Public Law 104-3 on March 7 expanding the eligibility dates for Korean War veterans.
Previously, only veterans who served from June 27, 1950, to July 27, 1954, and earned a campaign medal for Korea could join a VFW post.
The new law extends the dates from June 30, 1949, to a date yet to be determined. American troops who served any time within the new dates in the Demilitarized Zone now can join a VFW post.
For information on the law or on joining VFW Post 10076 call Bob Stevenson at (310) 253-3429, Steve Cone at (301) 831-5462 or Jay Smith at (301) 829-9237.
