If you are an Honorably discharged veteran, physically able to perform the required manual of arms with 8 lb plus M1 Military Rifle, and are available to help weekdays and weekends, we need you to become an active member of the Hopkins County Military Coalition.
The Hopkins County Military Coalition is an all Volunteer Unit formed in 1998 of Veterans from different branches of service whose primary purpose is to provide final Military Honors for any Honorably Discharged Veteran in and around Hopkins County. According to Karon Weatherman, Senior Citizen Center Executive, the Hopkins County Military Coalition is in need of additional members to be able to fulfill the requests from Veteran’s Families for Final Military Honors for their Family Members.
The Hopkins County Military Coalition meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM in the BINGO Hall of the VFW in Sulphur Springs. If you are interested in helping your Fellow Veterans or you want more information, please call Gene White, Commander, at (903) 885-9565, or Gordan Payne, 1st Vice Commander at (903) 439-4557.
