NEW ORLEANS, La. (WGNO)- In the past year, our city has seen it’s share of debate about monuments but among the memorials we all agree should remain are those dedicated to the brave men and women who have fought for our country.
There are also a host of books on our monuments like this one from local author Kevin J. Bozant.
Across the metro area we can pay tribute on this Memorial Day. The Great War Victory Arch in the Bywater is a tribute to the soldiers from the 9th Ward that fought and died in WWI.
Another WWI monument stands on Bonnabel in Metairie. And the elaborate and beautiful Korean War Monument stands proud on Vets and Causeway
Both American and Vietnamese soldiers are paid tribute at the Vietnam War Memorial on the edge of downtown with inscriptions written in both English and Vietnamese
That’s only a few of the many, and we have a host of opportunities to pay tribute on this Memorial Day!
