OK Field of Heroes
Henry, Melanie


Please join AARP Oklahoma on Memorial Day weekend as we honor our fallen military veterans. AARP Oklahoma is proud to sponsor the Field of Heroes memorial at Veterans Park in Tulsa from May 25 to 27.


Tulsa's VFW Post 577 and Survivor Outreach Services will display a field of military boots honoring Oklahomans who died while serving. The event offers a visual representation of the real meaning behind Memorial Day with a formation of empty boots donning ID tags and American flags representing fallen heroes' individual lives.

The display is open to the public over Memorial Day weekend.
Veterans Park, 1028 East 6th Street, Tulsa (formerly known as Centennial Park; across the street from VFW Post 577.)

If a service member was not included in previous years' displays and their families would like them included, please complete the form HERE.

Criteria:
· All conflicts, all branches.
· In a duty status at the time of death.
· Home of record as Oklahoma or a family member that currently resides in Oklahoma.

Please direct questions regarding service member inclusions to Jordan.C.Cox4.ctr@ARMY.mil.
