Veteran’s Day Ceremony at Veteran’s Park 11/11/11


A new monument will be unveiled on Friday, Veteran’s Day, 11/11/11, at 11:11am, at Veteran’s Park on Feu Follet in Lafayette.


The combat wounded members of The Military Order of the Purple Heart, members of the Vietnam Veterans of America and members of the Marine Corps League will each have a role in this year’s Veteran’s Day Ceremony.  The host, MOPH Chapter #504, will unveil and dedicate a special Purple Heart Monument.

The Veteran’s Day Ceremony will begin at 10:15 am, this Friday, November 11, 2011, at Lafayette Veteran’s Park located on Feu Follet Road.

Lloyd King, Commander of MOPH Chapter #504, is challenging every resident and every veteran in Acadiana to take time to attend the Veteran’s Day Ceremony and join in and witness the unique comraderie, fellowship, friendship, and love of the veterans and their families who represent all branches of service from World War II, Korea, Vietnam to the present day wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Part of Commander King’s challenge is to see how many citizens and veterans attend the Veteran’s Day Ceremony and extend a hand and thank a veteran for his or her military service.

During the Ceremony, a special announcement will also be made regarding how an engraved brick can be purchased to honor a family member or relative who were wounded in combat while serving in the military.  Bricks purchased will be laid in the heart-shaped slab and eventually on the sidewalk leading to the heart-shaped slab.

Please help spread the news about this special Veteran’s Day Ceremony, about Commander King’s challenge, and about purchasing a brick.

For more information, contact Commander Lloyd King.
