BPCC unveils monument in honor of veterans
BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - Bossier Parish Community College honored veterans Friday, Nov. 11 by unveiling a new monument.
Students on campus spent the last few years creating the monument as a way to honor servicemen and women.
This comes on the heels of BPCC being named a Top Ten Military Friendly School in the nation for the eleventh year in a row.
“Sometimes they [veterans] feel forgotten, and no one is day-to-day saying, ‘Thank you,’ like they should be. They say, ‘Oh, it’s Veterans Day, let me thank a veteran.” Thank them everyday because you wouldn’t be here everyday if they didn’t do what they did everyday,” said Christian James, president of BPCC Student Government Association.
