Some of our Shreveport-area senior veterans were recognized Thursday afternoon at a ceremony at the Cedar Hills Senior Apartments in Shreveport.
Each veteran received a certificate of honor and thanks while enjoying a meal and other fun activities during the day. Visitors and other veterans showed thanks for the military service of each veteran.
Former food service Sgt. Cullen Mayfield, a veteran, shared his appreciation for today's activities. "It means so much to me. All these veterans out here today doing what they're doing." He said that he appreciates the old and young veterans. "My heart goes out to the families whose loved ones are over in Afghanistan. I hope and pray that a lot of them will be coming home soon."
