Natchitoches Memorial Park

Posted: Updated:

NATCHITOCHES, La. (KALB News Channel 5) After months of planning and construction, the Natchitoches Veterans Memorial Park is beginning to take shape in downtown Natchitoches.

The purpose of the memorial is to give the people of Natchitoches a place to reflect and to honor those who have served our country.

The one hundred thousand dollar park is the first of its kind in the area.

Park leaders say it's a special tribute to those who service and sacrifice for our freedom.

"Many of these veterans returned home with no thank you's and no acknowledgment. So we felt like it is long overdue that the parish said thank you to the veterans. Those that are still living from World War II, those from the Korean war and especially those from the Vietnam war," said Dr. Bob Gillan.
