Veterans home remembers those who served

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - On Saturday, the Northeast Louisiana Veterans Home held its annual Memorial Day ceremony.

Officials such as Rodney Alexander, Mike Walsworth and Vance McAllister were there to speak and pay tribute to our veterans.

However, the focus was not about who was there, but who was lost along the way.

More than 80 names were read of the veterans who died this year in the home.  

Also remembered were the ones who never made it home. A poem was read to honor those missing in action and prisoners of war.

Entertainment was provided by the Assembly of God Church and the Richwood High School JROTC performed a rifle exhibit.
