A Veteran Friendly City
Take time to walk through the eight memorials within the park, sit by the pond, or reflect at one of the many seated areas like these at the War At Home Memorial.
The 4,600 square foot facility includes offices for local chapters of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, Vietnam Veterans, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and the Blue Star Mothers. The facility features a conference room, banquet hall, catering kitchen, and outdoor patio, all of which are available to the public for event rentals, with a special discount for veteran’s organizations.
In the “heart” of Broken Arrow, right on Main Street, is a symbol of the city’s commitment to veterans. At Veterans Park, you will find the following memorials: War At Home Memorial: Veterans Lost to Suicide American Patriot: Broken Arrow Veterans Korean War Memorial Vietnam Veterans Memorial Blue Star Mothers Gold Star Families Women of War LT. COL. Ernest Childers
Military History Center
In 2012, the City of Broken Arrow offered the Center’s current location on Main Street in the Rose District as a permanent home for a collection assembled by Col. Robert W. Powell. On November 11, 2014, the Center celebrated its first anniversary in the current location. The collection has grown over the years, and is open to all who are interested in learning more about our nations military history.
Main Street Tradition
Every year, Main Street is lined with the faces of men and women who served our country. Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the community is offered the opportunity to sponsor a flag pole with a picture of their loved one. The money raised from the banners supports the Military History Center and Broken Arrow Blue Star Mothers.
