The Western District of Oklahoma was one of 35 districts represented at the ceremony, which was held in the Great Hall at the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building.


In his prepared remarks, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein told the awardees: "These 179 award recipients embody the best of the Department of Justice.
