Members of the Weatherford College Student Veterans Organization visited the Weatherford armed services recruiting office Monday.
The WC group brought lunch to the recruiters, courtesy of Bakers Ribs, in a show of support and in honor of the Marines and Navy recruiters who were killed in a Chattanooga, Tennessee, recruiting office earlier this month.
“Weatherford College and the Weatherford community wanted to let our recruiting office know that we are in full support of them,” WC admissions secretary Tammy Peters said.
Pastor Eric Kuykendall from Trinity Bible Church provided a prayer and presented cards from 4 to 6 year olds written to the recruiters. Weatherford Florist donated flowers for the table, and Cindy Graham of the VFW Women’s Auxiliary helped serve.
Jim Gresham was also present from the Texas Veterans Commission as well as Heather Dezomits from the WC Education Center at Mineral Wells along with Ralph Willingham,
WC Veterans Coordinator and Director of Admissions, and Peters from the main WC campus.
