Youngsville is a wonderful town to live in, and the collective patriotism is strong.

 

Many people in town fly their American Flags year-round, and Youngsville even built a memorial to its veterans into one of the traffic circles.

Near the roundabout on Chemin Metaire is a grassy area on which a few monuments have been erected, right in front of Rouse's Supermarket, in memory of fallen veterans.
