LtGov Pinnell encourages Okies to visit military museums for Veterans Day



Lt. Governor Pinnell Encourages Oklahomans to Visit Military Museum on Veterans Day

(Oklahoma City, OK) – Ahead of Veterans Day, Lt. Governor Matt Pinnell is encouraging Oklahomans to visit one of the state’s many military museums to honor our country’s veterans. Veterans Day 2019 will take place Monday, November 11th.

“The importance of Veterans Day to Oklahomans cannot be overstated,” said Pinnell. “We are a state that honors and deeply appreciates our veterans and the service they’ve given to our country. 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.”
