Veterans Program

The Nooksack Tribal Veterans Program was created by the Tribal Council in 2007 to address the needs of its Tribal Veterans. The Tribe’s Veterans Program has services accessible to Tribal Veterans to ensure they receive the benefits they deserve for serving their country.

Nooksack Indian Tribe is a proud partner with The United States of American Vietnam War Commemoration. We have created the following videos to thank and honor Vietnam Veterans and their families.

Take Our Veterans Survey Here

We are creating a Nooksack database of all Nooksack Veterans, past and present. Please answer the following questions. This is a start. We will gather more information in the future. We want to build a program that honors all Veterans, active duty, and military families. Please email pictures you are willing to share online, in a display, or in the office to Cara McCoy.

If you are related to a Veteran that has passed, please complete the survey with their information.

    Hello, I am Luke Flowers and I am honored to serve the Nooksack Tribe and Nooksack Veteran Community.


    I am a Veteran and served as an Enlisted Soldier in the US Army during which time I spent most days overseas stationed in Korea and Germany or deployed to Iraq. As a Staff Sergeant I was awarded a Green to Gold Scholarship. I Graduated with Bachelors of Science degrees in Management & Leadership and Human Resource Management and then Commissioned and served in Hawaii until I retired as an Officer. I love my family, sports, art and spending time in nature.


    I can be reached via phone at (360) 451-0610. See you all around and please let me know if you need assistance as we honor and care for our Nooksack Veteran Community.
