Restaurants are offering veterans free meals or treats on the day we honor their service to our country. Several of these are also valid for active-duty military. Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. Freedom is not free.
The term "decorated officer" is certainly one that applies to the gentleman chosen to speak at the Lake Charles Mayor’s Armed Forces Commission Veterans Day observance on Saturday. Brigadier General Gary Brito is the commander of the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk.
My uncle Clay was a wonderful man. I used to spend time at his farm every Summer and I always enjoyed being around him.
I had no idea that he had been a POW in World War II until one day, when I was about 15, he gave me a diary to read.
The diary was kept from the time he was captured until the date he was liberated from Stalag IVB Mulburg.
Tuesday, November 11th is Veteran's Day. Let's all remember to thank all the men and women who served out country and really let them know their sacrifice is appreciated.
There is one more thing you can do to honor our veterans.
