Soon the Tulsa metro will have a memorial to honor Gold Star Families, those who lost an immediate family member while on active duty.

At 2 p.m. on May 27, members of Tulsa All Veterans Association, which funded the project, along with representatives from the Woody Williams Foundation, Owasso VFW Post 7180 and other local dignitaries will celebrate the unveiling of the new memorial in Owasso’s Veterans Park, 10320 E. 116th St. N.

To date, there are 126 Gold Star Families Monuments across the country, which includes memorials in Lawton and Shawnee. The program was started by the late Hershel “Woody” Williams, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his service in World War II. He died in June 2022.
