Apache war veterans honored

APACHE-- For a small southwestern Oklahoma town, they've given a lot to defend our county over the years. On Saturday, a park and monument were dedicated to the men and women of Apache who have served our country's armed forces, many of them losing their lives in the line of duty. 30 names dating back to World War I were inscribed on the monument as a lasting tribute to their sacrifices.

"It does my heart proud to come out here and see the number of people out here," said Brigadier General Ricky Adams, deputy commanding general for the Army National Guard U.S. Fires Center of Excellence at Fort Sill. "Our country is very supportive of all of our uniformed members around the world."

Organizers say the Apache Veterans Park is an official Oklahoma centennial project funded by lawmakers and the Rural Oklahoma Community Foundation. State Senator Tom Ivester and Representative Joe Dorman were among the guest speakers
