Please Join AARP Oklahoma in Honoring Our Fallen Military Heroes This Memorial Day

Posted on 04/28/23

Please join AARP Oklahoma as we honor our fallen military veterans this Memorial Day weekend. AARP Oklahoma is proud to sponsor the Field of Heroes memorial at Tulsa's Veterans Park, held May 27-29, 2023.

Tulsa's VFW Post 577 and Survivor Outreach Services - Oklahoma 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 - a formation of empty boots donning ID tags and American flags representing fallen heroes' individual lives.

The display is open to the public over the Memorial Day weekend with the following schedule:

  • Public dedication ceremony: May 27 at 2 p.m.
  • Display open: Saturday, May 27, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday, May 28, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday, May 29, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Address: Veterans Park, 1028 East 6th Street, Tulsa (formerly known as Centennial Park; across the street from VFW Post 577.)
