Kenneth Taylor to be Honored

BG Kenneth Taylor will be inducted into the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame on Saturday, 26 October at the Embassy Suites in Norman, OK. His wife, daughter, son in law, cousin, and her husband will be present to accept the induction.

As most know Mr. Taylor grew up in Hominy and, with another young Navy pilot, shot down several Japanese Zero’s over the vicious attack on Pearl Harbor. While he was technical director of Tora, Tora, Tora, he was also portrayed briefly by a young actor. He retired Brigadier General of the Alaska Air National Guard.

Some of our Post will be present at the ceremony, carrying the Governor’s proclamation issued four years ago that the Saturday before 7 December is Kenneth Taylor Day in Oklahoma and Hominy OK.
