Tell America TV, a series of informational TV interviews/programs created in 2005/2006 by then KWVA National Director James E. Yaney

March 21, 2011

Created on February 28, 2011, by then KWVA National Director Larry Kinard... the chapters listed here are those that he knew of, as of this date, that have active Tell America programs in place. Members of these chapters are making a difference in the lives of people in their communities, especially the students in the schools where they make their presentations. They have accepted the challenge and are fulfilling the obligation of telling the story of the Korean War and helping our citizens understand the true meaning of the FREEDOMS that we all enjoy in this country. All of us must continue to tell of what we did in Korea 60 years ago to stop the advancement of Communism and allow the South Korean people to live in freedom.

I feel sure this list is not complete because I do not know about all the chapters that have active Tell America programs. I know of these chapters and their activities through the website survey, looking back through old Graybeard magazines and those I have talked with over the past 6 years that I have been Chairman. If you have an active program and your name is not on the list, I will happily add your name if you will let me know by email at [Please enable JavaScript.] or telephone at [Please enable JavaScript.].

TELL AMERICA PowerPoint Presentation
We have had several requests recently for a PowerPoint program that can be used in the Tell America presentations. Now we have one!!! Thanks to Ryan Yantis former Executive Director of the Korean War National Museum who put in several hours developing the program. The file can be downloaded to your computer and used with Microsoft Office PowerPoint software.

I think this can be a significant enhancement to Tell America presentations and I hope many of you will try it out. It may be a little long for some school presentations but should work well for civic clubs and other community type programs. If you do use it, I would appreciate some feedback on how it works for you. Thanks again to Ryan Yantis for his good work on this!"

Eddie L. Bell Sr., 2011 National Tell America Chairman and National Director
