Veterans Day: Saluting the Spirit of Patriotism
The City of Midwest City has deep roots in the heart of our nation’s military. In fact, Midwest City was designed in 1942 to accommodate the largest military base ever built, Tinker Air Force Base. The air field was named in honor of Major General Clarence Tinker of Pawhuska, Okla., who was the first Native American general, and the first American general killed in World War II.
Every year on Nov. 11, Midwest City hosts a Veterans Day parade in honor of the men and women who served and are currently serving our country. This year, Lt. Gen. Lee K. Levy II, Commander, Air Force Sustainment Center, will preside as grand marshal.
The parade will feature car clubs, marching bands, musicals, a replica submarine, square dancers, flyovers and more. The parade will commence at 10 a.m. Nov. 11 on SE 15th Street and Century Boulevard.
Bring the family out and join us in honoring the dedication and sacrifice our women and men in uniform have put forth in order to give us the freedoms we enjoy.
