Two fallen soldiers return home today - KPLC 7 News, Lake Charles, Louisiana

Two fallen soldiers return home today

Good Tuesday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here in the KPLC 7Newsroom with a look at what's in store on today's Sunrise:

*Two fallen soldiers return home later this morning, decades after serving in the Korean War.  Find out how you can show your support this morning as one of the bodies travels through Southwest Louisiana.

*The Port of Lake Charles officially opens a new entrance at its terminal dock facility this morning.  It's a move they say will generate more business in the next 25 years.

*We love soldier surprise stories - especially right before Christmas!  Today, we'll show you how two sisters in Ascension Parish got the ultimate Christmas wish granted when their dad dropped by their school.

*If you're traveling in the Sulphur area today, make sure you allow some extra time if Old Spanish Trail is part of your route.  There will be a closure near the train track crossing starting at 7:00 A.M.

*We've got more sunshine and a warm up in store today, but Cedric Haynes says we will see a cool down before Christmas.  

Make it a Sunrise day!
