OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma Veterans Council honored Rep. Ken Luttrell, R-Ponca City, as the Representative of the Year during a joint legislative session of the Oklahoma House of Representatives and the Oklahoma Senate.

March 25 was Veterans Awareness Day at the Oklahoma State Capitol, a chance for veterans to visit with their state legislators and discuss legislation related to veterans’ issues.

“As a legislator, I have had the privilege of serving Oklahoma’s veterans and their families,” Luttrell said. “It has always been my goal to provide them a bright future here in Oklahoma. I humbly accept this recognition on behalf of all the veterans serving in the Legislature.”

Luttrell served in the U.S. Army field artillery from 1971 to 1974 and is a life member of the American Legion, Vietnam Veterans of America, and Disabled American Veterans.

In the Oklahoma House of Representatives, Luttrell chairs the Appropriations & Budget Subcommittee for Select Agencies and serves as a member of the Energy & Natural Resources Committee and Veteran and Military Affairs Committee.
