Celebrating Our Heroes!

Celebrating our Heroes!

The Louisiana Veterans Home Recognition Ceremony was held in Jackson. La., on Thursday, Nov. 10.

Former Louisiana National Guard Soldier Geary Williams served as the keynote speaker. Williams currently serves as the Veteran Outreach Coordinator at Clarity House. He thanked Veterans for their service and spoke of the importance of honoring those that came before us.

James Linden Hogg, LA State Fiddle Champion, provided the musical entertainment. This immensely talented multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter is only 17. Find out more about this talented teen by visiting his website: http://www.JamesLindenHogg.com
