The Republic of Korea’s Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs (MPVA) proudly sponsors the first Korea Revisit Program for Korea Defense Veterans in November 2021.
The Korea Defense Veterans Association (KDVA) is managing the application and selection of Defense Veterans who served in Korea since the signing of the Armistice Agreement on July 27, 1953.
MPVA has provided ten slots for U.S. Korea Defense Veterans along with a companion (spouses or helpers) for each Veteran. Participants will be selected from among the KDVA membership.
For U.S. Defense Veterans who are not yet KDVA members and would like to be eligible for participation in the Revisit Program, please join KDVA as a Regular Member by October 1, 2021 at https://kdva.vet/join-kdva/ – it is free.
Additionally, MPVA is providing one additional slot for the other Sending States, and a travel companion.
The Sending States that supported/are supporting the United Nations Command in Korea are: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Columbia, Denmark, Ethiopia, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, the Republic of South Africa, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Over 3.3 million U.S. Service Members and thousands from the other Sending States have served in Korea since the signing of the Armistice Agreement.
The program will be 4-5 days in Korea. MPVA will pay 100% airfare for Veterans and 50% for companions (spouses or helpers). MPVA will cover all other costs in Korea like meals, hotels, transportation, etc.
We will announce the date as soon as it is confirmed.
