Muskogee VA Hospital Hosts Ceremony For Military Veterans

Posted: Updated:
MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -

Some of our military heroes were remembered during a special ceremony at Muskogee's VA hospital Tuesday afternoon.

Jo Wright's brother Eugene Crosser, like all the other veterans represented at The Eastern Oklahoma VA Veterans Memorial Service, died in the past six months.

“He was real proud of his service.” said Wright. “He was with the U.S. Air force. He was a tail gunner on a B-17 and he flew 50 missions over Germany.”

All were proud patriots, like airman Donnie Vinson Jr. who was adjusting to life out of the military when he died in a motorcycle crash in June.

The ceremony gave families and friends the chance to celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

The songs, prayer tributes gave comfort and hope to those with hearts still hurting.

“It helps,” said Jenice Davenport.

The VA in Muskogee holds a Veterans Memorial Service every 6 months. The next is scheduled for January 24th at 1:00 p.m.
