OKLA. CITY —
PLANS FOR FUTURE EXHIBIT
An effort is under way to create an Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame exhibit in the Oklahoma History Center, Oklahoma Museum of History Director Dan Provo said.
The hall is sponsored by the Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation, founded in 1999 by Maj. Gen. Douglas O. Dollar (retired) to honor the military service of Oklahomans living or deceased with records of extraordinary service to the nation.
The Oklahoma Military Heritage Foundation also formed a partnership with Oklahoma Christian University. OC provides space for meetings of the OMHF board, logistical/event planning assistance, telephone lines, storage, space for the luncheon/press and permanent employees.
Provo said the exhibit planned for the military area of the Oklahoma History Center will focus on and change over time all of the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame inductees. It will include an interactive database, graphics, film, oral histories, biographies documents, cases displaying artifacts and archival material representing veterans both past and present, Provo said.
Currently, the project is in the fundraising stage, Provo said. It is hoped the exhibit will be opened to the public in November 2013.
Nominations for the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame are due by June 1 of each year.
