The Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs is currently reaching out to all Louisiana World War II women veterans. We will be honoring this special group of heroes during a June ceremony in Baton Rouge. We are currently preparing to hold a luncheon which will include a guest speaker and a ceremony in which we will present Louisiana honor medals, women veteran lapel pins and LDVA challenge coins.
If you are a Louisiana WWII woman veteran, or you know a Louisiana WWII woman veteran, please reach out to LDVA Director of Outreach Larry Williams at email@example.com or 225.276.8626. If the veteran is not able to attend the luncheon and presentation of awards, we will mail them their awards.
The Bienville Parish Journal would also like to spotlight Louisiana WWII women veterans. Please contact the journal at BPJNewsLA@gmail.com or call Brad at 318-332-0558.
