Forgotten Victory Screenings
The 60th Anniversary of the Korean War, June 25, 2010 – July 27, 2013
Host a Forgotten Victory Screening and honor Korean War Veterans in your community!
What is a Forgotten Victory Screening?
These screenings are designed to be free-of-charge community events to screen CHOSIN with Korean War veterans attending as Guests of Honor. This gives people a unique way to honor the veterans and the privilege of meeting local heroes of the “Forgotten War.”
Why hold a Forgotten Victory Screening?
Nearly 4 million people lost their lives during the savage three-year war, 36,576 of them American. Their selflessness and sacrifices have gone unnoticed for too long. With 2010 marking the 60th Anniversary of the Korean War, we ask you to stand with us and honor our nation’s Korean War Veterans.
Who can hold a Forgotten Victory Screening?
Anyone willing to step forward and stand with us can host a screening. We highly encourage veterans’ organizations, community groups, schools, and individuals across the country to answer the call.
How do I host a Forgotten Victory Screening?
You may contact Brian and Anton through firstname.lastname@example.org to order a Forgotten Victory Screening Kit and register your event. We will also assist you in locating local veterans’ organizations in order to contact Korean War Veterans to attend your event.
Forgotten Victory Screening Kit:
Your kit will include an event-licensed DVD, two movie posters, an event planning and discussion guide, and post cards with a promotional code to purchase the DVD online at a discounted price. A portion of every DVD sale is proudly donated to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund www.semperfifund.org and the Wounded Warrior Project www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN HOSTING A SCREENING
• Be creative when selecting a location: high school auditoriums, VFW or American Legion Posts, or banquet halls can all hold a large number of people and may already have audio and video equipment.
• Invite local Korean War veterans as Guests of Honor to your screening through your local VFW, American Legion, or Korean War Veterans Association.
• Get the word out! Mass e-mails and social networks like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter are a great way to raise awareness. If you are not part of a veterans’ organization, you may want to reach out to one and offer to assist them in putting together a Forgotten Victory Screening.
• Host a discussion group or social event such as a dinner or cocktail hour after the screening. You can ask your Guests of Honor if they would be willing to share a few words, or give the audience an opportunity to chat with your heroes.
If you would like to setup a military, university, or public school screening, or a screening that charges admission, please email Anton Sattler or Brian Iglesias at email@example.com.
