NEW FROM THE HUT by John Hamilton
At our last Hominy Post 142 monthly business meeting, there was a small ceremony conducted by the Post First Vice Commander, Charlie O’Leary to present new American Legion hats to a couple of our latest Post 142 members Jim Evans and Kevin King.
Jim Evans is an Army Veteran of the Vietnam War, a member of our Hominy Post 142 for the past year and has been a resident of Hominy for many years. Jim has many stories from his military life and about Hominy and the surrounding areas.
Kevin King is an Army Veteran of the Gulf War, a member of our Hominy Post 142 for the past three years, and an employee of our local Dick Connor Correctional Center in Hominy. In addition to that Kevin is a very handy, Handyman. All the members of Post 142 would like to thank Kevin for his wonderful repair job on our Post Hut’s rain-damaged roof and the repair of the damaged sheetrock inside. Thank you very much, Kevin.
Our regular Legion business meetings are held on the first and third Thursday of each month. Our next meeting will be on Thursday, March 24th at 7:00 PM. The Monday morning Koffee Klatch meetings have been resumed at 8:00 AM. If you are a veteran, come by for our monthly meeting, and/or the Monday morning Koffee Klatch meetings. The second Monday morning Koffee Klatch will be held off-site at a restaurant in or around Hominy. The off-site location may change from time to time.

If you have a good story, it may end up in print. Also, keep up with us at the Post 142 website “americanlegion142.org” and Hominy Legion on Facebook.
