The legacy of a man who helped many veterans in Texoma throughout his life was immortalized in a special way on Friday evening.
Wichita County Veterans Service Officer Glen Eickman's family, friends, and community leaders helped dedicate the "Glen Eickman Memorial Pavilion" at the Wichita County Cemetery.
Glen's daughter Lee Eickman says her father was able to impact many personally and professionally and the pavilion will help honor those who have fought for this country.
"He was all about helping the country, the community; it's about helping anyone that he could," Lee says. The navy was a big part of his life and any armed forces, they all being together and carried that on through his life and even through his retirement.
Glen Eickman pioneered several veterans programs in the county including an outreach program where he traveled to VFW posts in Wilbarger and Baylor counties and taught former service members how to file for veterans claims.
