LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Lawton VFW Post 5263 put together a spaghetti dinner Thursday night to raise funds for the United Service Organization of Oklahoma.

The post served up a warm meal of spaghetti, garlic bread and salad -- all with a dessert and drink.

Tickets were $8, and all proceeds will go toward USO Oklahoma and its services.

The VFW post regularly holds dinners like these and its an act of giving commander Dale Scott was happy to be a part of.

"They're always need more money to support more military and military families, he said, so that's why we, every month, try to have a benefit dinner for any organization, just to help out the community  to give something back to the community that's always giving us something."

USO Oklahoma provides services to military members across the state, from Fort Sill all the way to Tinker Air Force Base.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
