Are you thankful that you can remain safe at home without risking your life by fighting in wars? If so, Honor Veterans Club is a perfect place to demonstrate your gratitude to those who have sacrificed to serve the United States and other countries in war.
Honor Veterans Club (HVC), a volunteer service club for LCHS students, was founded at the beginning of the school year by junior Sunny (SunHyoung) Park after being inspired by her dad, who works at the Korean Consulate in Los Angeles and works to serve Korean War veterans at many conferences and meetings.
The main purpose of the club is to show appreciation to the veterans who fought for the United States. In the past five months, the club members have written and delivered “thank you” letters to veterans residing in Ventura and Glendale. Additionally, on Veteran’s Day, the club sent homemade Pepperos, a Korean snack, to veterans in the LA County area.
When asked about the importance of recognizing the veterans’ services, junior Sunny Park said, “With their sacrifices, we are able to live in this country and have lots of benefits, such as freedom. We definitely need to honor them and express our gratitude.”
If you are interested in joining, make sure to contact Sunny Park or attend the monthly meeting during Thursday lunch in room 205!
