Help Us Pack the Funeral for a Veteran with No Family
ASMDSS Nation we need your help! We got word that this Thursday at 1030 in Oklahoma City, OK a local funeral home will be holding a service for a Veteran named Mark Wayne Howell that passed away last month. He has no family, and very few friends. The stand up citizens who own OKC Cremation & Funeral Home wanted to make sure that he was laid to rest properly and have arranged for an Honor Guard to provide full military honors.
No veteran should be laid to rest alone, so we want to make sure we PACK THAT SERVICE with his brothers and sisters in arms for a final send off. Dust of the dress uniforms, come in duty uniform if that is all you have and of course all veterans can wear what they want.
Lets show Oklahoma City and the nation that there truly is no greater brotherhood than those who are serving or have served in our nation’s Armed Forces. You may not have flesh and blood family, but we are your second family. HELP US GET THE WORD OUT BY SHARING THIS POST, ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE YOU KNOW THAT LIVE IN OK. The farther we spread it the better the turnout will be.
DETAILS FOR THE SERVICE:
