SMSgt Dan Snow (USAF, ret) has been selected as the inaugural Oklahoma “First District Veteran in the Spotlight” for March 2013. After 23 years of decorated service in the US Air Force, Mr. Snow continued leadership in his community by co-founding the Union High School Air Force Junior ROTC program; producing an award-winning documentary of the Bataan death march; hosting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Traveling Wall, an event which drew 50,000 visitors; and most recently teaming with many members of the community to raise the needed donations to send and host 80 cadets at the Presidential Inaugural Parade.
