Veteran’s Day doesn’t just mean a day off for some people. It’s a day where we can honor any veteran of any war, dead or alive. Here are some Veteran’s Day celebrations you can take part in in Oklahoma City.
Everybody can attend the ceremony at the 45th Infantry Museum. It celebrates all veterans and begins at 10 a.m. with a keynote address. Last year, the keynote speaker was Maj. Gen. Gregory Ferguson, of the Air National Guard. At this outdoor ceremony, you’ll find color guards and the “Governor’s Own” 145th Army Band.
If you’re a Veteran, you can get out and see some of your favorite parts of Oklahoma City for free!
Free admission at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum. If you’re a veteran, head over to this museum and take a bite out of western culture. Maybe even trade in the combat boots for some cowboy boots.
Free admission at the Oklahoma History Center. Take advantage of free admission and check out what you don’t know about the Sooner State.
For Veterans & Friends:
Lions and tigers and bears… you know the drill. At the OKC Zoo, veterans get free admission on the 11th and can bring up to five guests with them.
