Jim Beckett and Steve Swinford are scheduled for the Warriors Honor Flight to Washington DC. I don’t have dates yet but it is quite an experience. They will depart the Tulsa International Airport dark-thirty and return that night. With full escorts they will be treated as they should, veterans who served in difficult times. Jim was USAF and Commander Swinford in-country Vietnam US Army veteran. They will see all the great memorials in Washington DC at no cost. It is quite an honor.
When we participate in raffles with the State Legion, the money comes back to Hominy. Usually you can approach any Legion member. This week I can tell you where patriotic business owners are putting them out for sale. Right now it is the recently relocated Pawn Shop on main street and the Napa Store almost across the street. Our favorite Barber Shop and the Beauty Parlor Samman’s Salon are hosting our American Legion magazines. More updates next week.

All of the Oklahoma 100th Anniversary coins have been sold out at State HQ. There are no more. We have some and they are only $5.00 for Post members and $10.00 for non-members. I bought one of the remaining one three weeks ago. Do you know what the “challenge coin” history is?
Monday morning Koffee Klatch meetings in February are still scheduled for biscuits and gravy or doughnuts and always a cup of Joe (coffee to the civilians). Just watch the weather, it is the only factor that my change that. If it is 32 degrees or less it’s a no go. Again, the 13th of Feb will be the annual Auxillary-American Legion Valentine Banquet at 6:00 pm. If you are a veteran come on by. If you have a good story it may end up in print.
