Waymon Cruell, United States Army Veteran 

Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation

Congratulations to our veteran of the week, Mr. Waymon Cruell of Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Mr. Cruell served our country as a member of the United States Army.  Thank you for your service, sir.  We appreciate you!

The Foundation is excited to partner with the Oklahoma Dental Foundation in providing free dental care for veterans. The mobile dental clinic will be onsite and will see patients on April 20, 21, 22, and 23rd.  Appointments start at 9 am and they can assist ten veterans per day.  Please call 405-550-8806 Ext 101 and ask for Paige to schedule an appointment.

Last week in the mail, we received notifications of the following rating decisions.  Forty- four veterans were rated at 100% for their service-connected disabilities.  This group of veterans will receive a combined annual $1,785,821.  Seventy-nine veterans received ratings between 10% and 90%.  Together they will draw $1,088,748 a year.

When you come to see us, please make sure you bring your DD214, rating decisions and any medical paperwork you may have.  We ask all veterans to keep a file of their paperwork to ensure you have your copies.  We do not keep your information on file at the Foundation.  As you know, we stay busy and have hundreds of people visit us each week.  Please be patient and courteous to our volunteers and the veterans and their families who wait with you.  We are all in this together and do the best we can to ensure each veteran and family member receive the best help we can provide.

Social Security will be at our Foundation on the following dates:

  • February 27
  • March 10
  • March 26
  • April 7

As we are assisting over three hundred veterans and surviving spouses each week, we are making a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Join us in our mission by donating or volunteering your time.  We are in need of copy paper to assist us with veteran claims.  If you would like to donate some, please drop by any Tuesday or Thursday morning, or mail to P.O. Box 592 Washington, OK  73093.

If you would like to help us make a difference, we welcome your support. We spend over $30,000 each month in direct support of the veterans and family members we serve. We are transporting many homeless veterans to our Norman location each week to begin the process of making a difference in the lives of the men and women who have served in the military.  As you know, we are a 501 (c) 3 non-profit and are wholly dependent on donations from the people we serve and local grants. We accept donations of vehicles that can be given to veterans in need or sold to raise funds to continue our mission. You can shop items from our Amazon charity list to stock our food pantry and shop AmazonSmile with us as the charity – we will receive .5% of your eligible purchases. If you are interested in including us in a gift, please contact Lora at 405-550-8806, ext. 101. Monetary donations can be made online or mailed to PO Box 592, Washington, OK, 73093.

Food sacks are available for those who need them.  If you need a ride to and from a VA medical appointment or our Foundation, please contact 405-550-8806, Ext. 105 for Clayton or Ext. 106 for Louie.

We are available Tuesdays and Thursday mornings at 1268 North Interstate Dr. Norman, OK  73072.  Visit our website at dalekgrahamveteransfoundation.org.
