Kenneth McCulloch is the winner of the Giving Spirit Award for the month of June. Below is the nomination submission for Kenneth:
He is a founder and 30 year member of the VFW Post 527 Honor Guard.
This is the group of men that show up at the Veteran's of Foreign Wars funeral to play Taps and offer the 21 gun salute. He is 86 now and has done, I believe an average of one funeral a day, five days a week and as many as three in one day for the last three decades.
This is a moving moment at every funeral where a grateful nation gives thanks for the service of the men and women of the armed forces.
Most members of the Honor Guard are very senior members of the community and would like to inspire some younger veterans to carry the torch forward into the next generation.
The continued recognition of service members is a national duty for all Americans and I believe he demonstrates the Giving Spirit each and every time he dawns the white gloves and the rest of the uniform.
He is also my father and an inspiration to all who know him as the kind and giving spirit that resides within him.
Each month, someone in the Tulsa viewing area will be awarded for his or her volunteer spirit - someone who has made a difference in our community.
