To the Members of Huron Valley AMVETS Post 2006
With great sadness I write to inform you that one of our members, Oakman Hurd, passed away on December 15, 2019 in Gaylord, MI.
Our 1st Vice-Commander, Jack Weber was a very close friend with Oakman and provided just a few of many details of his life and experiences. He was born and raised in Bangor, Maine. He was in the U.S. Army serving two tours in Vietnam and was a Silver Star recipient. He retired from the Army holding the rank of Major. When in Germany he was a flight instructor and a commercial pilot.
He served as a Town Manager in Maine. When living in Highland Michigan, he was very active in the community and was an amateur radio operator holding the callsign of K800L. He was a member of our AMVET post, the VFW Post 9914 and the Milford American Legion. He served on many boards when living in Atlanta, Michigan.
A memorial service is tentatively scheduled on April 25, 2020 at the VFW Post 9914 in Highland, MI. Additional details will be sent out as they are received from the family. Oakman was a great man, great soldier and a great friend!!! He will be greatly missed………….
