Iowa governor visits Oklahoma City bombing memorial


The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY — Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has visited a grove of trees donated by Iowans to the victims of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

Branstad joined Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin to visit the site Friday. Fallin was lieutenant governor when the grove was planted and invited Branstad — who is in Oklahoma City for a National Governor’s Association conference — to visit the memorial.

The trip was the first by Branstad to the site since he took part in a dedication ceremony for the grove in November 1995.
