NEW ORLEANS — Veterans and community members reported for duty Saturday morning to honor Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy through an impactful day of service at the Sankofa Market in the Lower Ninth Ward. The veterans are volunteers with the ‘Mission Continues,’ which is a nonprofit organization that empowers veterans who are adjusting to life at home to find purpose through community impact.
