Veteran’s Day Service will recognize Korean War Era Veterans, seeks public help for identification

The Natchitoches Parish Veterans and Memorial Park Committee will host a Veteran’s Day Service on Monday, Nov. 11 at 3:30 pm to honor Korean War Era Veterans at the site of the park beside and behind the Old Courthouse Museum on the corner of 2nd and Church. Your help is needed to insure we have a complete list of those living Natchitoches area veterans who served during the Koeran War period 1950-53. The Park Committee/VFW/American Legion will include the names of those attending in the program and recognize them with the presentation of a Korean War Memorial Pin at the ceremony.

Please send names to Bob Gillan at bobgillan@cp-tel.net or pass them on to any member of the Park Committee,VFW/American Legion or Auxiliary. Additionally, the program highlights will include the recognition of those area high school students who represented our community at Louisiana Girls and Boys State. All area veterans, friends, and families are encouraged to join us in this celebration of our veteran’s service to our country.
