Staff reports

On the second Saturday of every month Yukon Veterans Museum is open for a Service Day.

Each Service Day runs from 9 a.m. to noon.

There are many veterans in Canadian County in need of help with Veterans Benefits Administrations paperwork. Making sure a vet is receiving the proper benefits or explaining how certain paperwork needs to be filled out are some reasons to stop in, but any questions are welcome. On the second Saturday of every month a service officer available for personal assistance.


Jerry Icenhower and Jerry Stafford can be found at the museum to offer help. You can also find a lot of history at the Veterans Museum, along with fellow vets to visit with. Bob and Linda Reynolds are there to hand out a cup or two of coffee.
“Since we have been helping with the Scars & Stripes Coffee, we have watched many vets receive the help they need with the sometimes daunting and confusing V.A. benefits or just sit and laugh while telling a story or two,” Bob Reynolds said.

The next Service Day is Saturday June 11. If you have any questions, stop by the Yukon Veterans Museum located at American Legion Post 160, 1012 West Main Street in Yukon.
