Honor Flights

Featured in Top Stories

The Honor Flights program was started to take World War II veterans to the nation's capitol, so they might see the monuments built out of respect and gratitude for their generations' sacrifice. But with more and more veterans passing away due to their advanced age--an estimated thousand a day--the program is upping the number of trips to three a year. Reporter Lis Exon and photographer Ilea Shutler joined the June 6th Honor Flight--the 68th anniversary of D-Day.

They also became a force in the economy, owning over 7,000 businesses and bringing billions of dollars in revenue to the state. With a primary election a handful of days away and November rapidly approaching, it's a demographic neither party can afford to ignore.

Preserving History Woolaroc (5:31)

Featured in Preserving History

When Frank Phillips established Phillips Petroleum in Bartlesville in 1917 the price of oil had just jumped from 40-cents to a dollar a barrel. A far cry from today's price of eighty dollars a barrel for west Texas intermediate crude, but it was enough to make Phillips a multi-millionaire. The visionary businessman enjoyed his wealth to the fullest, building a mansion in Bartlesville and a country home known as the Woolaroc lodge ranch house. Today it stands just as it was nearly a century ago and visitors are invited to hear the stories of a man who helped build Oklahoma.
