OKC Bombing: Story of a Hero

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

9:02. One minute changed Oklahoma. It’s a day we will never forget. April 19th will mark the 20th anniversary of the OKC Murrah Bombing. Like in any major tragedy, hero’s stepped up in Oklahoma’s greatest time of need. Fireman jumped into action, business offered services, and people gave their time. One of those was Allen Houck of OKC. He is now a retired fireman that still remembers the bombing like it was yesterday.

Allen said that his first thought was to “get the job done.” He knew that it was his duty to help in the recovery efforts. Allen, like so many, spent days working the bombing.

20 years later we still remember the ones we lost and the ones who scarified their time and energy to help.

Here is Allen’s story: https://soundcloud.com/hilaryparr2015/okc-bombing-story
