The Box

Because of the nature of the Outpost Harry Survivors Association, the Association will cease to exist when the last member who participated in the defense of Outpost Harry during the Korean war dies.

Plaques are attached to The Box inscribed with the names of the Association's past presidents.  The front of The Box is shown in the picture above and the names continue on to the sides of The Box.

The Box is to be opened by the last surviving member and the fine bottle of whiskey inside is to be used to make a final toast in honor of all who participated in holding that crucial hill, Outpost Harry - at all costs - during  the Korean War.

We Held!
