Memorial Day at the local American Legion Post

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) – There were many remembrances held across the Ark-La-Tex today for Memorial Day, and KSLA News 12 visited one here in Shreveport.

Shreveport's Mayor Cedric Glover took part in honoring veterans.

This was at the local American Legion Post.

Today's event was two-fold, as participants also celebrated the start of an infrastructure project at the post.

Local energy companies working in the Haynesville Shale, Chesapeake Energy and Halliburton Services, donated a $200,000 check toward an elevator installation project at the Lowe-McFarland Post.

The project will help wheelchair-bound members gain access to the 2nd floor of the building.
