Veteran's Day Ceremony

veteransDAYBeing home to Fort Johnson, Vernon Parish citizens are very patriotic and proud to support the military community. In fact, a large percentage of our population are military veterans and even more have worked closely with the military at civilian jobs on post.

The City of Leesville is home to three veteran's organizations:

American Legion Post #145

Balaam Jones American Legion Post #510

VFW Old Stage Post #3106

Every year these organizations work together to host a Veteran's Day Ceremony at the Vernon Parish Veteran's Plaza on Third Street (across from the US Post Office).
