OKLAHOMA CITY – Sergeant Harvey Carl Stockton was recognized as Veteran of the Week before the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday by Rep. Eric Roberts, R-Edmond, and Rep. Dick Lowe, R-Amber.

 "I am honored to recognize Sergeant Stockton for his service to our great nation," Roberts said. "Throughout his service, he exemplified bravery. I am grateful to thank him personally for his contribution and sacrifice to preserving the freedom and way of life we hold so dear."

 Stockton was honored before the House of Representatives alongside his wife, Joyce, of 59 years. Their son Reggie and wife Julie attended, along with Stockton's four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Roberts issued a citation to Stockton on the House floor.

 Roberts' citation noted Stockton's courage and devotion throughout his service in the US Army, US Army Reserve, and Oklahoma National Guard, including Motor Messenger in Korea. He received an honorable discharge from the US Army and US Army Reserve after more than seven years of service.
