KDVA is very thankful for the ROK Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs (MPVA) for sponsoring this important and exciting program. KDVA is managing the application and selection of Korea Defense Veterans who served in Korea since the signing of the Armistice Agreement on July 27, 1953.
The number of slots for U.S. Korea Defense Veterans along with a companion (spouses or helpers) for each Veteran will be announced soon. Participants will be selected from among KDVA members. 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 – it is free. JOIN KDVA >
