Chickasaw veterans place wreath at Tomb of Unknowns

Ada —  

      Three Chickasaw veterans recently placed a wreath on the tomb of the unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery to honor all Chickasaw veterans.

     Jerald Nichols, Jimmy D. Eddlemon and James D. Moore took part in the ceremony during a trip to Washington D.C., the tribe offers to veterans in appreciation for their service.

     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.”
