Military History Center hosts a salute

The Military History Center Salute to Veterans will be at 2 p.m. November 12 in the Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center.

The Fort Sill 77th Army Band, The Pride of Fort Sill, will be featured as they entertain with military and patriotic music. The band was founded March 1, 1907 and after being inactivated and activated several times, the band was finally activated on February 24, 1955 at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where it has remained. It has served under many different headquarters at Fort Sill and is currently aligned with the Fires Center of Excellence, but it has always been “The Pride of Fort Sill.”

The Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center is at 701 South Main Street in the Rose District of Broken Arrow.

In addition, Miss Maggie Bond, former Miss Tulsa, will add to the patriotic theme of this performance with patriotic and inspirational songs.

This event will honor America’s military veterans past and present. There is no cost for the tickets, but donations are appreciated to help offset the cost of this event. Tickets will be available at the PAC door on the day of the event or from the Military History Center at 112 North Main Street in Broken Arrow.

The Military History Center is a nonprofit museum with artifacts from all of America’s major wars. For more information call the Military History Center at 918-794-2712.
