TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) – Cherokee Nation officials are seeking donations of military memorabilia from tribal members for display at the Cherokee Nation Veterans Center that is to open in Tahlequah.

The 7,700-square-foot Veterans Center will house veteran assistance and benefit offices, a kitchen, a community room, a library and a museum. The entrance will feature a "Wall of Honor" of Cherokee veterans.
