SOUTHWEST LA. (KPLC) - Veterans' Day observances. They're more than just about being patriotic. They're about honor the men and women who have or are currently serving their country in the nation's military. That's why the City of Lake Charles is holding three events this Saturday to say thanks to our veterans.
"We're going to begin at 10 o'clock with a Veterans Day ceremony, have a guest speaker and special recognition of our World War Two and Korea Veterans," said Scott Raymond with the City of Lake Charles.
Following the ceremony will be an 11am parade and a gumbo cook off. In Sulphur, residents will gather at 6:45 Saturday night at Heritage Square.
"We'll have patriotic music, we'll honor all the different service members," said Harry Montgomery with the Sulphur Mayor's Armed Forces Committee. "We'll honor the veterans."
And on Sunday, residents of the Dry Creek area will remember their veterans at the East Beauregard High School Stadium, an observance that's been popular for years.
"I found out that a lot of people who were privy to the welfare of this country...the veterans who served...never got recognized," observed Montgomery. "That's part of the thing we're going to do is recognize the military community."
"I think that for all they do, they risk their lives all the time for us," added Raymond. "I think it's very important that we keep that kind of thing top of mind that are veterans really are very important and we shouldn't forget them."
And you can do your part being there, just like they were there for you, in times of battle.
