Freedom Isn’t Free

Friday, Southwest Louisiana War Veterans Home in Jennings remembered fallen brothers and sisters during its annual Memorial Day service. The solemn occasion was marked with patriotic and spiritual song, prayer, a Salute to Armed Forces and an address from Rodney Alexander, secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs. The Post 19 American Legion Honor Guard also performed the Posting and Retiring of the Colors and a folding of the flag before a balloon sendoff outside the facility.
