September 2, 2015VFW Post 8904 Veterans and Ladies Auxiliary members gathered at the Shelby County Veterans Memorial on Monday, August 31, 2015 to honor Veterans of the Iraq War with Larry Hume, Quartermaster, leading the ceremony.

"The war in Iraq began on March 20, 2003 and continued until August 31, 2010 five years ago," said Hume. "It's been five years since the end of hostilities and it's our duties as fellow veterans and citizens to ensure that this piece of history and the sacrifices made are not forgotten."

Hume recognized those Iraq War veterans he knew to be present at the ceremony including Ben Galindo, past Post Commander Mike Langford, and Addie Boyd.

Ben Galindo performed the honor of placing the memorial wreath on the Shelby County Veterans Memorial where it remained until sunset.

"Today we've gathered to remember our fallen comrades and all those who served in the Iraq War. Many served more than one tour, not only in Iraq, but also in Afghanistan," said Hume. "As we always say, the sacrifice is meaningless without remembrance and the core members of our VFW Post and Ladies Auxiliary will never forget, nor let the general public forget, and they are mostly uninterested but we will not let them forget."

A presentation was made by Galindo to VFW Post 8904 by way of an American flag which flew on a C-130H during a combat mission over Iraq on May 15, 2003 and was received by Gene Hutto. TAPS was then played as presented by Mike Langford.

September 2, 2015 - Center Rotary Club presented a check to the Catherine Pinkston Roughrider Scholarship Foundation (RSF) during the September 1st Rotary Club meeting. Accepting the $33,000 plus check was Jerry Pinkston, RSF board president. The funds were raised during the Fun for Funds benefit auction held earlier in the year.

Pinkston read thank you letters from Center 2015 graduates who had received scholarships. The RSF has over 2 million dollars and gives students who apply a $1,200 scholarship.

The program speaker for the meeting was Jeff Fatheree who spoke on behalf of CHI St. Luke's Health in regards to their upcoming plans and commitments to East Texas. Though not present, Fatheree introduced Ilyas K. Mohammed, M.D. with the Heart Institute of East Texas and explained Dr. Ilyas's exciting new procedures in heart catheterization to the members of the club.

Dr. Mohammed specializes in Heart and Vascular Care, and is commuting to Center several days a week from his Lufkin office. "We are going to do all our procedures in Lufkin, but all of your followup appointments, just your checkups, your routine care is going to be able to be done here," said Fatheree. 

He emphasize the benefit of not having to deal with big city traffic for big city care. He also spoke about future plans, "So, our idea was to come over and provide some care, maybe make it where it is a little closer to home. We're bringing a mobile cardiac imaging unit online probably about the end of October." "CHI's mission is to provide better health care and better health to East Texas," continued Fatheree.

Fatheree ensures all that this is just the beginning of a very bright future with CHI taking a close look at what East Texas needs. A partnership between CHI St. Luke's and The Texas Children's Hospital is also in the works to provide care for children in East Texas. He mentioned CHI St. Luke's Health plans to bring in more specialists, further improving the quality of health care throughout East Texas.
