It was a very eventful November for Post 3608, and we are always amazed and extremely humbled and thankful for how Oklahoma communities honor those that served every day, but especially for Veteran’s Day.
A number of our Post members placed flags at the graves of veterans interned at the Blanchard Cemetery.
The Oklahoma City FBI Field Office had a ceremony honoring members of their agency who are also veterans, and our Post’s Color Guard was honored to be invited to post the colors at this event.
The Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) had a Veteran’s Day event that included Pearl Harbor Survivor Lt.Col. Bonelli and invited Post Commander Vern Babcock to attend.
The City of Blanchard has one of Oklahoma’s largest Veteran’s Day parades, and our Post was proud to participate in it.
The Tri-City Wal-Mart in Newcastle also invited our Post to help with their thank you to veterans on Veteran’s Day.
On Veteran’s Day evening, the Post 3608 Color Guard posted the colors at the Rodeo Hall of Fame induction ceremony held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
Also, our Post received nearly 3 dozen hand-made Veteran’s Day cards from Robin Smith’s 5th Grade Social Studies class at the Blanchard Intermediate School. These cards were sent to local Post members.
