The OklahomIraqis League: Born in Baghdad; Resurrected in Oklahoma
The OIL was founded in Baghdad, Iraq by U.S. soldiers from Oklahoma in 2006. Since then, managers have competed during subsequent deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa. It's provided distraction during those tours. And it's provided camaraderie the men have missed when they're States-side, keeping the brothers-in-arms connected over a decade later.
