Communities Foundation of Oklahoma


By Communities Foundation of Oklahoma / February 3, 2016
Dale Graham is a man with a mission.

When he served in the U.S. Marine Corps, his mission involved trekking through the jungles where he was stationed during the Vietnam War. Graham has long since retired from active duty and now fights for a different cause: supporting fellow veterans.

In 2009, he founded Veterans Corner. The nonprofit operates out of the community center in Goldsby. Every Thursday morning, the volunteers assemble. From 7 a.m. until noon they help veterans fill out claims for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

“A lot of people who come to us don’t have anything but Social Security money,” Graham said. “They come from all over Oklahoma. Sometimes we even have guys come up from Texas.”
