Celebrating Veterans Day
By Assistant Chief Jack Austin Jr.
November 1, 2022
It’s November, which means that we will have the privilege of honoring our Choctaw veterans and those who have served in our United States Armed Forces!
Whether it’s during our regular session of Tribal Council, when a veteran is recognized from their respective district or ensuring that our veterans have designated parking sites at Choctaw Nation offices and businesses, we are proud to honor our veterans. These are small gestures compared to the sacrifices made by our Chahta Tvshkas.
Additionally, our Choctaw Nation Veterans Advocacy Program ensures that our veterans are treated with respect and dignity by VA service providers. Many times, having that advocate makes the difference in obtaining the services our veterans deserve and need.
The Choctaw Nation is here to recognize, serve, and honor our veterans. If you are a veteran and need assistance, please call 800-522-6170.
