Honoring Veterans

From the Blog Admin:

Please accept my sincerest apologies for not submitting these wonderful photos from Gere Gaige (see below). Gere remembered those soldiers that have died during military service last weekend in honor of Memorial Day 2022. Although we were late in posting the photos, it was a timely and appreciated submission from our longtime pal (and one of the founders along with John McElligott) of the blog. Thank you, Gere for remembering those that made the ultimate sacrifice.

The Midland Water Drinkers will also be recognizing Cpt. John L Barker (RIP) on June 10, 2022 at 12:00PM in Midland. If you are in the area, please join us for the celebration at:

American Legion
501 Veterans Airpark Lane
Midland, TX 79705

Lunch will be provided. All are welcome.

Join us at 12:00PM for food, fellowship and a presentation of military medals to the surviving family of Cpt. Barker in honor of his dedicated service during the Vietnam Conflict. If you need additional information, please contact Dr. John McElligott (jmcelligott@ohswest.com)

Appropriate honor symbols at our gate… for this important weekend.  Hwy 126N, just north of Gassville, Arkansas.

Here is my wish:
May those of us who do know – continue to honor the warriors who went before us….
…may those of our countrymen who do not know – somehow come to appreciate all that has been done for them with the lives of those who know.
