Tribal Women Veterans Summit working to help Oklahoma female vets

OKLAHOMA CITY – An event that is working to help Oklahoma female veterans is welcoming anyone who has served in the military.

The Tribal Women Veterans Summit will address healthcare for women and applying for benefits or disabilities.
