Community Support

Each year there are both recurring and specialized events and activities in our community for which the Chapter provides monetary or manpower support.

The Military Welcome Center at the Lawton-Fort Sill Regional Airport provides a lounge in the terminal area for military (active, reserve, retired and veterans) and their families to relax in comfortable recliners, with computers, and a large screen TV.  The MWC is operated by volunteers (many of whom are Chapter members).  While 2020 saw the MWC closed for parts of the year, in 2019 the MWC  served over 10,000 service members, veterans and military families.  We have also routinely made an annual monetary donation from the Chapter.

Another recurring support function is manpower assistance to the Fort Sill National Cemetery.  For the last several years, Chapter members have been part of clean-up, flag emplacement and recovery and other generalized support to this wonderful final resting place for our Veterans.

Although the Covid-19 pandemic significantly impacted our opportunities to serve our community, there were also unique needs in 2020 that the Chapter stepped up to help meet.  One of these was monetary support to the Lawton Food Bank and another was a drive by parade for the Lawton Fort Sill Veterans Center residents after being shut in for several months.
