OKLAHOMA CITY – March 14th, State Rep. Sean Roberts recently welcomed
representatives of the Hominy Chapter of the American Legion to the
Oklahoma State Capitol.
“The American Legion is a widely respected organization and it was a
pleasure to meet with them,” said Roberts, R-Hominy. “We presented them
with flags to show our appreciation and to let them know how much we
value their service.”
Roberts and retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Rita Aragon, who currently
serves as the secretary of Oklahoma Department of Veterans’ Affairs,
presented to Hominy Chapter members Steve Swinford and Jim Frazier
Oklahoma and American flags that had been flown over the state Capitol.
“The state and nation have been served well by our veterans,” said
Aragon. “And now as we lean on them again to help find employment for
our brothers and sisters who need to find jobs across our state, the
governor and I thank those veteran service organizations that volunteer
to serve those who served our nation. The contributions these VSO’s
make are extremely valuable in every veteran’s life and they continue
to serve their fellow veterans.”
American Legion Post 142, “The Hut,” is the Hominy Chapter of the
American Legion. It was established after World War I by Congress to
ensure veteran’s rights. Frazier serves as the post commander.
