Oklahoma has military museums across the state
In light of Veterans Day, you might not know Oklahoma has at least 16 museums and sites dedicated to the military and veterans. Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell said Friday that the importance of the annual holiday cannot be overstated.
“We are a state that honors and deeply appreciates our veterans and the service they’ve given to our country,” said Pinnell, who also serves as secretary of tourism and branding. “I think a great way to honor our veterans and learn more about their service would be to visit one of our great military museums in Oklahoma. Their stories are important and valuable for Oklahomans of all ages to know and appreciate. I encourage all Oklahomans to find a way to say thanks to our country’s veterans, and consider visiting one of these museums to learn more about their sacrifice.”
Here’s a list of those museums. A full listing of all museums in Oklahoma can be found here.
