American Legion Post 16 hosts Korean War veteran lunch
Jun 25, 2017 - 9:37 PM

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- In honor of the 57th anniversary of the Korean War, American Legion Post 16 hosted a lunch along with the Korean War Veterans Association to pay its respects to the men and women who served our country during the war.


The post began the lunch with two short videos and a reflection on the war itself. 


During the lunch, many attending veterans were able to look back on their own service and what they remember.


An estimated thirty guests were anticipated to come.


Post 16 says although this is only their second annual appreciation lunch, they hope to hold the lunch again next year.
