The TWU Veterans Committee met in TUL for the third quarter meeting. While there we all were honored to have the Spartan Sword displayed and we came together as a group to say the Spartan Pledge. To find out what the Spartan Pledge is or to take the pledge visit http://www.spartanweekend.org/ We have completed the May Day Raffle and were able to raise a total of $6,692.54 for Building Homes for Heroes. Thank you to all members who bought tickets to help such an awesome cause. Please continue to reach out to your local elected representatives with issues you have or feel should be addressed.
We are beginning to collect items for the 2016 Operation Free PX. If you have items that you would like to donate, reach out to your local's Veterans Committee Chairperson for additional information.
The Veterans Committee 3rd Quarter Meeting was held by Local 514 in Tulsa, OK this month. We were honored to have the Spartan Sword at the meeting to make the Spartan Pledge. Since the Sword is so new, it did not have a designated shipping container. The Chairman of the committee, Pete Meyer, asked Local 514 member Dale Lantz if one could be made. Without hesitation he jumped on the idea and with approval the mission was set. Vern Smith took the reigns and created a beautiful and permanent shipping container for the Spartan Sword as its journey's continue. Thank you to these men and to Local 514 in helping to ensure the safe travels of the Spartan Sword and what it represents.
Thank you to all those who contributed and/or participated in the 2016 Operation Free PX. TWU and it’s members raised a total of $224,790.10 in cash and in-kind donations. We could not have done this without all of your support. The recipients of the items were very grateful.
