There's a brand new seat in place for tonight's game at ONEOK Field, and it’s dedicated to a special group of veterans.

The Oklahoma Chapter of the Rolling Thunder helped bring the Chair of Honor to ONEOK.

There are several of them along the East Coast, but it’s the first of its kind west of the Mississippi.

The stadium seat will always sit empty as a reminder of the more than 92,000 service members who are unaccounted for since World War II.

"There are still those that are not yet home that have fought,” said Kay Guynes of Rolling Thunder Oklahoma. “They're not home to celebrate in the country that they love [and] they're not home to celebrate the freedom that they fought for, that they have died for."

The Oklahoma Rolling Thunder says they have several other places in Oklahoma that are interested in the chairs, so they hope to place more across the state soon.
