NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) —It’s Memorial Day.

Always the last Monday in May.

Always to remember American military men and women who died while serving.

PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans, at all locations across America, salutes the heroes by reserving a table to honor the fallen, missing, or imprisoned military members.

WGNO Good Morning New Orleans features reporter Bill Wood was at PJ’s Coffee at 7624 Maples Street in New Orleans.

PJ’s Coffee President and Army Veteran Peter Boylan said, “PJ’s Coffee is dedicated to giving back to our nation’s heroes for the brave sacrifices they and their families have made for our freedom.”
