Cherokee Nation officials want to honor Cherokee veterans for their service by permanently showcasing individuals’ military memorabilia inside the new Cherokee Nation Veterans Center that is nearing completion.

Those items include: uniforms, military gear and equipment, flags, videos, recordings, unit insignia, diaries, personal messages, photographs, military maps and charts, books and history of personal or unit service, dog tags, medals, and service related documents, newspapers, books, and records.

“The Veterans Center is a permanent home that recognizes the commitment of our brave servicemen and women to America,” said Cherokee Nation Deputy Principal Chief Joe Crittenden, a U.S. Navy veteran. “By adding the tokens of memorabilia from our military veterans, we can better honor them and their sacrifices. Additionally, it creates a sacred space where personal histories can intermingle with our tribal and our country’s history.

“I ask my fellow Cherokee veterans and the families of veterans to share what they feel comfortable sharing. We will proudly showcase those items along with the warriors who brought them home.”
