Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

We did a road trip to Oklahoma City to attend Leonardo Martinez graduation celebration from the University of Oklahoma where he was taking a Course in Disease control. The army sent him for this study as part of his medical work in the army.

So when we arrived there he gave us a tour of the city. One of the photo stops was at the capitol building.

Another stop we did was the the Memorial for the Federal Building that was bombed on April 19, 1995, the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. We basically did the walking tour which brought you through the "Gates of Time", along a reflecting pool. There is a "Field of Empty Chairs" to memorialize those killed in the event. My photos of the Survivor Wall did not come out too clear but the survivor tree came out pretty good.

Finally we attended his graduation ceremony at Oklahoma Universities football stadium. Senator John McClain was the keynote speaker.
