A special salute to the area Veterans will highlight Memorial Day activities from 10:00AM – 4:00PM, Monday, May 27, 2013, at Forest Park Cemetery, Shreveport, La. The cemetery staff will be present to provide flags and Forget-Me-Not seed packets to all who attend. Light refreshments will also be available.
"Each year we greet families as they visit their loved ones in the cemetery with small, commemorative flags. Many families choose to mark their veteran loved ones graves with these flags. While this is just a small token of our appreciation for the selfless service that the veterans have provided to our country, we feel it important to provide this distinction and honor to them each year on this special day," states Jim Goodman, Family Service Director.
