Missing Post Commanders Pictures

NEWS FROM THE HUT by John Hamilton

The Hominy Post 142 was started in 1920 with the first Post Commander being Ernest Walker who served seven years from 1920 to 1927. To date there have been 50 Post Commanders but, the post does not have all of their photos. The list below represents the 50 Post commanders that served from 1920 to 2021. All of the blank names of commanders are the ones we already have photos for. The years with a name listed are those Commanders without photos. I am trying to enlist the help of all those Hominy News-Progress readers out there with trying to help us locate these missing photos. Please let me thank all of you in advance for your help with this search.
