A.M. UPDATE: Cherokee Nation honors seven marshal veterans

TAHLEQUAH — The Cherokee Nation honored seven of its marshals who served in the military with the Cherokee Medal of Patriotism during its April 22 Tribal Council meeting.

Deputy Marshal Jon Ketcher, 42, of Pryor; Sgt. Danny Doolin, 56, of Braggs; Marshal Executive Director Shannon Buhl, 43, of Tahlequah; Deputy Marshal Daniel Mead, 33, of Tahlequah; Sgt. Joseph Rainwater, 39, of Tahlequah; Deputy Marshal L.D. Drywater, 63, of Tahlequah; and Sgt. Tony Asbill, 48, of Stilwell received a medal and plaque from Principal Chief Bill John Baker and Deputy Chief Joe Crittenden acknowledging their service to the country.

“This honor has made us extremely proud of our service to the Nation in the military and to the Cherokee Nation through the Marshal Service. These guys didn’t just put their lives at risk during their military service, but they do it daily,” Buhl said in a media release. “Veterans don’t get recognized enough, and it says a lot about the Cherokee Nation that the administration and council take time out of their busy schedules to do that.”
