Broken Arrow war hero dies

Flags are flying at half staff in Broken Arrow for an Oklahoma war hero.

It's in honor of Colonel Ernest Childers who died this week. Childers was a native of Broken Arrow. He was one of only two American Indians to receive a medal of honor during World War II.

A 9-foot statue of Childers is the centerpiece of Broken Arrow's Veterans Park.
