Korean Cold War Reunion


Korean Cold War Veterans, 


We, Camryn Landreth and David Benbow, would like for you to attend a reunion on March 23-25, 2018 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Statesville, North Carolina. We will have a hospitality room for all of you to gather starting Friday March 23rd through Sunday March 25th. There will be dinner together on Friday and Saturday evenings at the hotel. You will need to pay approximately $25 per dinner. The hotel has given a special room rate of $109 plus tax per night. You will need to mention that you are a Korean veteran to get the discount. The hospitality room cost has been donated. 


David Benbow has been helping me organize this event. He has been to half a dozen of these reunions and has enjoyed each one. His favorite part of these reunions, has hands down been the quality time he has gotten to spend catching up with old friends and making new ones, all of whom were in the military after 1953. Most of you receiving this, served in the late 1960's and early 1970's. 


This invitation extends to your families! They will no doubt enjoy learning more about what you did as a soldier. David Benbow will speak Friday night about your shared history and about Agent Orange spraying in Korea. Saturday morning there will be a trip to Richard’s Military Museum in Mooresville and a trip to a NASCAR team shop. The History Channel documentary “Running the DMZ” will be shown in the hospitality room Saturday afternoon and the hospitality room will be open for informal conversation during this time and/or you may want to take a nap in your room. 


Saturday evening another dinner will be held, with a program on the books and publications on various internet sites about the Korean DMZ. Hopefully some of the authors will attend. 


A slide show of your time in Korea will be shown.  Some books and magazines will be given away also. T-shirts and other Korean related merchandise will be available for purchase. 


Those of you who will fly, can fly into Charlotte or Greensboro. Each airport is one hour by interstate from Statesville. Those who drive, will find easy access via I-77 and I-40, which intersect in Statesville.
