Luncheon brings World War II veterans together

CROSSVILLE — The third luncheon of the year honoring local World War II Veterans was held at Shoney's Restaurant Friday, Sept. 28. The meeting was well attended by veterans, wives and guests and featured an interesting and informative presentation by former U.S. Air Force Colonel James Thompson, a Cumberland County resident.

The luncheon was organized by hosts Bill and Nancy Oehlecker of Tansi, who plan to continue these luncheons every few months in order to provide opportunities for veterans to spend time with fellow servicemen who were involved in one of the most important eras of the country's history.

Colonel Thompson, a practicing attorney, shared important information on wills, trusts, estate planning and other related topics, and his presentation resulted in numerous questions from the audience, which contributed to an excellent program thoroughly enjoyed by all. Veteran Affairs regulations and the effect of Tennessee laws on residents were widely discussed.

The program included announcements of local interest to all veterans, including the Veterans Day celebration in Crossville the weekend of Nov. 10 – 11. Numerous door prizes, courtesy of K-Mart and Kroger's, were awarded.

The date of the next luncheon has not been determined but notice will be provided in the local media. Organizers are hopeful these meetings will continue to attract many of the county's World War II Veterans. For more information readers are invited to call the Oehleckers at 788-6222.
