Congratulations to our veteran of the week, World War II veteran, Mr. Dewey Muirhead of Wewoka, Oklahoma. Dewey and his wife Inez recently celebrated their 78th wedding anniversary. During his service in the European theater, he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. After the war, Dewey worked as a driller in the oilfield industry. Over ten years ago, I met Dewey and Inez when they asked me to help them with their VA claims for benefits. I call them anytime I visit Wewoka. As their friends are aware of, Inez makes great fried chicken! Thank you for your service Dewey and to Inez, thank you for supporting your veteran! Each day this pandemic continues, all our volunteers are praying that we can get back to our mission. We want to open our...

July 27, 2020 Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation Weekly Newsletter A LETTER FROM DALE K. GRAHAM Over the last several months, I have reflected on what our small group of volunteers has been able to do for the men and women who served as a member of the American military. When I look at the number of veterans and surviving spouses that our volunteers have been able to assist, there is no comparable organization in the United States that has ever accomplished what we have done. Currently, there are around 30,000 veterans and surviving spouses who are represented by our Foundation before the Department of Veterans Affairs. I am very proud of our volunteers that are going above and beyond in these trying times. Even though we cannot currently...

July 20, 2020 Dale K. Graham Veterans Foundation Weekly Newsletter A LETTER FROM DALE K. GRAHAM As we work to assist veterans and surviving spouses of deceased veterans during this pandemic, I want each of you to know that we are continuing to make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Each week we are receiving over one hundred claims from the men and women who have served in our military. Processing claims remotely, without the veteran present, takes longer than when we are physically with the veteran. We hope you will understand the delay in processing each claim. Many of you are aware of the triage system we use where our most experienced volunteers review each veteran’s claim in order to determine the best course...
