In keeping with our mission of Vets Helping Vets, we do a lot for both individual Veterans in the community, as well as helping support Veteran Care Facilities and other Veteran Organizations. Here are some of the things we’ve been privileged to get to do lately. Text is copied from facebook posting. You can also see what we do on our public Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cvmatulsa or by clicking the facebook logo on the menu.

We were contacted regarding a Veteran in Owasso who was in a motorcycle accident. His injuries severely limited his mobility. We reached out to our supporters through our Facebook page, and in 12 hours we were offered 6 mobility scooters. We picked one of them up, installed new batteries and delivered it to him to use until he is recovered from his injuries. Thank you to our great supporters for making this possible!

Today we got to be a part of a great mission to honor a young soldier who died in Syria.
“Spc. Etienne J. Murphy
Died May 26, 2017 Serving During Operation Inherent Resolve
Spc. Etienne J. Murphy, 22, of Loganville, Georgia, died May 26, in Al-Hasakah, Syria, of injuries sustained during a vehicle rollover related incident.”
They coordinated a pony express style relay to get the portrait to his parents in Atlanta, GA.
This morning we met the Wichita chapter to get the portrait and delivered to our Ft Smith chapter. It will continue through Mississipi, Alabama and then to Georgia.
It is truly amazing to see people across a thousand miles come together to accomplish a mission. Very few know each other personally, but we all have a common bond, being part of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association.

We were recently contact by one of our members who does heat and air. He informed us of a situation with an elderly veteran with no heat and air. Soldiers Wish and Eagle Ops were partnering with AirServ of South Tulsa to replace his unit.
10-2 was only able to donate $500 due to limited funds, but chapter members passed the hat and raised another $470 to make our total donation $970.
This was made possible wholly by those who donate and support us.

(From our FB post)Word is spreading about what we are doing to help local Veterans. Yesterday we were contacted by an employee at the VA. He had a 74 year old Vet in his office that was seeking assistance with a couple of expenses he was struggling with. It wasn’t much, around $140. Our officers quickly voted to help him out and our XO called and paid the bills directly for him.
If you know a Veteran in a crisis, let us know and we can help if possible, or we can direct them to the proper resources. All help is contingent on availability of funds, which solely come from our 2 annual fundraising efforts and donations.

Vets Helping Vets!
A few weeks ago one of our members was contacted by an employee. He said he had a Veteran friend, JT, who was in Orlando for school and had a serious motorcycle accident, leaving him in a coma. Our member shared this info with one of our officers, who then got in touch with the Orlando Chapter.
They were able to make contact at the hospital and speak with JT’s wife and parents.
Their wish was to get him to family home area in Western Arkansas, but medical transport was upward of $7,000.
An idea was presented that each Chapter from OK, AR and FL donate at least $100, which would get them close.
All 3 state chapters, along with others, came together to raise enough to pay for transport, and some to give the family to help them through these troubling times.
Another awesome thing is that he did open his eyes while our FL members were speaking with him.
He is now home in Arkansas and the family is able to have some relief by being closer to home through this.
Proud to be a member of such an amazing association of brothers and sisters!

She is attending school to try and better herself. Life happened and she got behind and was facing some bills being shut off. This included her gas and her internet service she uses for school, both within days of disconnect.
We were able to assist her with a $500 check to get caught up so she could focus on moving forward and getting her education.

Often times, just like civilian facilities, these veterans have little, or no, family to visit and do things like this. The Vet Center let us know which ones needed gifts and our members responded.
Thank you to everyone who helped out!”

We are proud to have been a part of it”

Because of my lung issues I haven’t been able to sleep flat in quite a while. I’ve dealt with the VA trying to get an adjustable bed, which they offered a hospital bed. I’ve slept in a recliner for over a year, so the goal was just as much to sleep with the wife and the hospital bed didn’t do that.
Today we were going on a Poker Run and Dirty and Jukebox said they would meet at my place and roll from here. They showed up and, after a little talking, Dirty tells me the chapter voted to donate me and the wife a dual side adjustable bed.
My wife broke down crying, although I’m not sure if she was excited we get to sleep together again or crying BECAUSE we had to sleep together again. Lol
I think some onion cutting ninjas found their way in to my pocket, because my eyes leaked a little too. We never asked them for this nor expected it, so it was a big shock.
This will really be an improvement on sleep, on my marriage and on life in general. I do not know how to properly express my gratitude to my fellow CVMA Chapter brothers and sisters. A thank you seems so miniscule compared to the blessing this represents.
Thank you everyone. I am proud and blessed to be allowed to be a part of such a great organization and brotherhood.

Along with items donated by members and others, 10-2 donated $500 for clothing to each center.
Like most that we do, it is made possible because of our supporters. Thank you!”
September 24, 2021
Thank you to all those who support us for making this possible!”
Sep 21st, 2021
We presented it to them today.
These Veterans that reside at the center are very excited to have this coming. Many have little to no family visits, especially with COVID restrictions, so the brotherhood/sisterhood within is all they have. Now they will have a place to watch movies, sporting events and more!
We will share pictures when they get it mounted up and going.
Thanks to everyone who makes things like this possible”
