Veterans Day a Chance to Celebrate Veterans, Find Solutions

“Veterans deserve the opportunity to build a life reflective of the sacrifices made for the freedoms we all enjoy.”

TULSA, OKLA. – Rep. Monroe Nichols (D-Tulsa), candidate for Tulsa Mayor, released a statement ahead of Veterans Day honoring Tulsa’s 30,000 veterans and committing to end veteran homelessness.


“We have Veterans to thank for the freedoms we all enjoy,” Nichols said. “The number of those who have served in combat that now live on the streets in Tulsa is completely unacceptable. From day one, I have talked about a commitment to end homelessness in our community, and that starts with ending veteran homelessness, which accounts for over 10% of our overall homeless population. Ending homelessness will be a top priority of my administration. We will implement accountability measures to ensure we are working tirelessly with the community so no veteran spends their night cold and unsheltered.”


“Veterans deserve the opportunity to build a life reflective of the sacrifices made for the freedoms we all enjoy. Ending veteran homelessness is a major step in ensuring Tulsa is the best city in the world for those who have fought to keep us free.”
