More On Upcoming Wounded Warrior Banquet

Published on December 19, 2014 by Larry Crippen

Another reminder that the Wounded Warrior Banquet is coming up next month. It’ll be on Thursday the 15th of January at 5:30 at the Walker County Fairgrounds with tickets available for $50 at the Trailer Store, Walker County Hardware, the HEARTS Veterans Museum and Bill Fick Ford.

The idea for the banquet came in 2009. Veteran Tom Fordyce, the late Judge Richard Duncan and local veteran and banquet supporter Jimmy Wood took a trip to tour Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio.

They toured the Center for the Intrepid where Mr. Fordyce saw a very authentic looking silicone prosthesis. He asked if they could make one for the left arm he lost in Vietnam, and they agreed.

Tom Fordyce tells us more . . . .

 

Retired Lt. Col David Yebra and Vietnam Veteran Tom Fordyce will be our guests on “Around Town” this weekend.
