Ada —

     Bill Anoatubby, governor of the Chickasaw Nation, said that it is fitting the veterans placed the wreath at the tomb.

“Those who have served in the armed forces have a unique understanding of the significance of the memorial,” said Anoatubby. “They know better than most the great sacrifices necessary to protect our country and preserve our freedom. This trip is one way we express our appreciation to those who serve to advance the cause of freedom.”
