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 able to help one of our own members who was struggling during a job transition. We were able to donate $500 to help him with utilities and rent.

October 8, 2022

Our yard sale at Ray’s Speakeasy was a lot of fun. We raised over $1k that will go to help local area Veterans in need.

October 1, 2022

Our Annual Warrior Ride to deliver cool and cold weather clothing to Tahlequah and Claremore Vet Centers.

September 11, 2022

We held our 2nd Annual 9/11 Honor Run. Close to $12k was raised to help local Veterans in need.

September 1st, 2022

We were contacted about 2 different situations. Both disabled Vets, one between jobs and another battling some legit VA pay issues. Votes were approved to help both Veterans, one with $300 and the other with $500.

(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!

10-2 Wraps up the Annual Firework Stand. We appreciate everyone who came out and supported us, as well as all those who put in lots of time working it throughout.

June 21st, 2022

10-2 recently learned of one of our own members in a bad situation. His medical issues have made working difficult and his wife is dealing with Lupus. We voted to donate $500 to help them out, then, because he is one of our own, we passed the hat and raised another $420. A few of us rode out yesterday to surprise them with the check.

“We were recently notified of a Veteran in need of help. She is a service connected disabled Veteran with injuries that were aggravated to the point it was preventing her from working.
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.

“Keeping with our motto, Vets Helping Vets, today we got to deliver a donation to a local veteran who has been in a bad motorcycle accident. We all wish him a good recovery and him and his family a very Merry Christmas.
This is possible because of those that support us.
Thank you all.

“We had the honor of getting Christmas gifts for some resident Veterans at the Claremore Vet Center.
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!”

“The Tulsa ABATE Toy Run was awesome. I’ve heard everywhere from 2k to 4k bikes participated, but haven’t heard an official count yet.
We are proud to have been a part of it”

“Today we delivered 2 electric scooters and 2 walkers to donate to the Claremore Veterans Center. These will be used for Veterans who are residents in the facility.
Thanks to all who made this possible.”

“I get the honor of sharing things that Combat Vets 10-2 does for local area Veterans and organizations. Today I was put in a spot I don’t hit often, being at a loss for words.
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.

“Today, in our annual Warrior Ride event, 10-2 delivered cold weather clothing to the Tahlequah and Claremore Vet Centers.
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!”

“We are proud to present a $1,000 donation to the Coffee Bunker to assist them in helping our local Veterans in many ways.
Thank you to all those who support us for making this possible!”

“Tulsa Combat Vets 10-2 recently voted to purchase and donate a TV and sound bar for the Claremore Vet Centers new “game/theater room”.
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”
