Honoring sacrifice of Navy commander

The Folds of Honor Foundation gave an Owasso military family a well-earned surprise this Memorial Day weekend. 

Lt. Cmdr.  Matthew Stephens, a Navy lieutenant commander, sacrificed not only his time, but his health to serve our country.

He served three tours in Iraq and was injured in 2010.

What better way to honor a hero than to take care of his kids?

And the surprise was delivered by the iconic Budweiser Clydesdales, clipping down the street in perfect unison.

Stephens’ four children received money for school.

Maj. Dan Rooney from Folds of Honor delivered the checks.

They will provide $5,000 per child per year to attend Rejoice Christian School, a private school in the area.

“To hear them coming down the street and then to see them I was in awe,” said.

“I kind of felt a little bit famous getting them to come down just for us,” Stephens’ daughter Tiffany added.

After the presentation, there was a special ride for Stephens and his wife.

“It was definitely life-changing … a memory I will always have,” Stephens said.

It was well-deserved ride most never get to take.

“I turned into a little kid. I admit it,” Stephens added.

“I think it’s really good for the kids to know that everything their dad did is paying off for them personally,” Stephens’ wife said.

  • New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the city would begin to take down the first of four Confederate monuments early Monday, Fox News reported, while a group that sued the city to halt the action held a vigil in protest. The Liberty Monument, erected in 1891, is an obelisk that commemorates the Crescent City White League, which tried to overthrow a biracial government in New Orleans after the Civil War. Landrieu called the Liberty Monument “the most offensive of the four” and said it was erected to “revere white supremacy,” Fox News reported. “If there was ever a statue that needed to be taken down, it’s that one,” Landrieu said. Meanwhile, the Monumental Task Committee began holding a vigil at midnight at the Jefferson Davis statue, WWL reported. Landrieu has begun reviewing a bid for the removal of the Davis, Robert E. Lee and P.G.T. Beauregard statues, WWL reported. A City Hall spokesman issued a statement Sunday, saying that the city is “committed to taking down the Confederate monuments.” 
  • It’s been two years since Broken Arrow High School released a Lip Dub video. The 2017 video was well worth the wait. The video had nearly 20,000 views after just a few days online.
  • The state of Arkansas plans to conduct a double execution on Monday. Two condemned killers who admit they're guilty but fear poor health could lead to extreme pain during lethal injections might become the first inmates put to death in a double execution in the U.S. in more than 16 years. Jack Jones (pictured, left) and Marcel Williams are set to die Monday night. If put to death, they would be the second and third Arkansas inmates executed this month. Arkansas originally wanted to execute eight inmates before one of its lethal injection drugs expires at the end of the month in the nation's most aggressive execution schedule since the U.S. Supreme Court restored the death penalty in 1976. Arkansas put Ledell Lee to death last week in its first execution since 2005. Another inmate, Kenneth Williams, is set for execution Thursday.
  • Saturday, funeral services were held in Tulsa, for Oklahoma State Rep. David Brumbaugh. He passed away last weekend due to an apparent heart attack. Friends, family and colleagues had nothing but good things to say about Brumbaugh. “Every time that he spoke, he did it not because of what he thought politically, but because it’s what he thought was right,” one colleague said.  “Hopefully, those of us that are still there will be able to follow that.” The service was held at Tulsa Bible Church.  During the service, Brumbaugh was remembered as a man dedicated to public service and to his faith.
  • A cashier is said to be in stable condition, after getting shot during an armed robbery Friday night. The shooting happened around 7:29 p.m., at the RK Food Mart on North Utica Avenue. “After the cashier cooperated and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect shot him in the foot one time,” Tulsa police said.  “The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment.” A description of the suspect hasn’t been released.   Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
