Serving those who sacrificed

Daily News Staff Report

American heroes were honored this week as the entire nation celebrated its independence, with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal visiting the Southwest Louisiana War Veterans Home (SWLWVH) on Wednesday to honor veterans here at home.

Director of the home, Matt Duhon, said the governor’s visit helped to give credit where credit is due, as medals were awarded to 45 veterans. Although the ceremony was a great way to recognize those who sacrificed for the nation’s independence, the public is encouraged to show their “thanks” year-round to the area’s heroes.
