BATON ROUGE, LA (KPLC) -

The Louisiana State Senate held its 9th Annual Military Family Day to honor Louisiana fallen heroes and their families on Tuesday during the legislative session in the Senate Chamber at the State Capitol.

The following Louisiana military members were honored: Louisiana Army National Guard Sergeant Michael Norbert Perry Jr. of Slidell; United States Navy Air Crewman Joseph "J.P." Fitzmorris of Shreveport; United States Marine Lance Corporal Esrom "Izzy" Joseph of Opelousas; Louisiana Army National Guard Sergeant Kevin Weiner of Shreveport; United States Marine Sergeant Michael J. Guillory of Pearl River; Louisiana Army National Guard Specialist Ryan Michael Delrie of Prospect; Air Force Technical Sergeant Larry Dolan Bunn of Bossier City; Army Chief Warrant Officer Bryan J. Henderson of Fort Necessity; and Army Lieutenant Colonel Don C. Faith Jr.

Since the 2005 legislative session, the Louisiana Senate has honored 180 fallen military personnel from Louisiana serving in the U.S. military who have sacrificed their lives in defense of our freedoms.

Each of the fallen heroes were honored with a resolution which was read by Sen. Robert Adley, R-Benton, a veteran of the Vietnam War and United States Marine Corps. The measures were passed by the entire membership during the legislative session.

Each resolution will be given to the soldier's family along with a state flag.

"Military Family Day is a very special day here in the Louisiana Senate where we officially recognize and honor our brave military heroes killed defending our rights and freedoms. We want to make sure that our military families know that we have not forgotten and will never forget the sacrifices made by them and their loved ones," Adley said.
