OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City first responders spent the overnight hours at Will Rogers World Airport, serving meals for soldiers traveling home just in time for Christmas.

According to the Oklahoma City Fire Department, firefighters, Oklahoma City police officers and the YMCA teamed up to provide meals to soldiers traveling home from Fort Sill for the holidays.
