On April 26, 2015, the MO Eastern District Cooties Group (composed of Pup Tent 5, 9, 12, & 15) convened at the Mexico Missouri Veterans Home in Mexico, MO for their annual BBQ and Cootie Bingo. The group did include our Past Supreme Commander Ken Cole, Grand Commander elect Butch Bequette, and VFW Sr-Vice Commander Nancy Cowan. After the torrential rains the day before, the group was blessed with sun shiny moderate temperatures and lots of room to visit with friends as the BBQ chicken was being prepared for the residents. The official count was 33 MOC/MOCA members there for the BBQ and Bingo. Always a real pleasure to be able to visit with our comrades who are current residents at this fine facility. Our veterans homes are staffed with wonderful caring folks who appear to always go the extra mile for our heroes - many thanks and your work does not go unappreciated!!
