Every year, on or near the weekend celebrating Veteran’s Day, OKMHF presides over the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame’s annual Induction Ceremony and Banquet honoring nine individual military personnel or organizations who have demonstrated heroic gallantry in action, uncommon valor, sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty, or extraordinary leadership.
These people define “Oklahoma’s Military Heroes” and represent the epitome of the over 655,000 men and women who have honorably served Oklahoma and the Nation since statehood.
When you attend the induction ceremony and banquet and learn of the profound military and civic accomplishments of these extraordinary men and women, be ready for an event you’ll never forget! You will be compelled to stand tall and applaud, your heart bursting with pride, and a tear in your eye with gratitude for what our honorees have done to preserve our freedom and liberties.
These honorees make us proud to wear the uniform of the United States Military and to support those who do, and grateful to be a citizen of the great state of Oklahoma and the greatest Nation in the world, the United States of America.
