Veterans Recognition Committee


At the Fall Leadership Conference/Trustee Meeting, September 27-29, 2012, President General Leishman announced the creation of the Veterans Recognition Committee (VRC). He directed that the World War II Veterans Corps Program be placed under the purview of that committee, and that the VRC implement the establishment of a Korean Service Veterans Corps. His decision is in concert with United States Senate Resolution 602 that followed two months later. On November 27 the Senate approved a bipartisan resolution formally recognizing the 60th anniversary of the Korean War and designating 2012-2013 as the “Year of the Korean War Veteran.” For further information concerning the VRC go to Veterans Recognition under NSSAR Committees or click here.
