Choctaw Nation Introduces New Veterans Archive Website

Published June 3, 2024

DURANT, Oklahoma – The Choctaw Nation launched a new website to honor and share information about Choctaw tribal members who are veterans of the United States Armed Forces. The Choctaw Veterans Archive can be found at

The site is a collection of stories and information for and about Choctaw veterans. It features sections for Choctaw Veteran Biographies, Veteran Resources, and Events and News for Veterans.

Choctaw veterans can provide their service information in the biographies section. Personal information, that of a family member or one deceased may be added.

The goal of the project is to honor Choctaw veterans by preserving their stories and making them accessible to the public. It will also better serve current veterans in need of information. The Choctaw Veterans Archive website is a free service.

In addition to the ability to upload your information directly through a site portal, Judy Allen, tribal historian is also recording interviews with Choctaw veterans for the website. For inquiries, contact Allen at [email protected].
