I have previously talked about the incarcerated veterans at the Oklahoma State Reformatory located in Granite. The incarcerated veterans at Lawton, with the approval of Warden Rios, have established a veteran group that meets monthly and they have formed peer groups that meet weekly to discuss the importance of have a plan for reintegration into society.
This group of veterans has projects that help many in their outside community and the veterans take pride in what they do and that pride is justified. The veterans at the Lawton facility take pride in themselves, the veterans group, and in the projects they have for the community surrounding the prison. These men are veterans and we should say “thank you” to them in any way that we can because they are giving back in ways that we don’t think of because we are too busy with our family, our career, and our social life.
This group of veterans is working hard to accomplish their goals and they are taking pride in what they are doing.
