Old State Capital filled to honor veterans
BATON ROUGE - People filled the Old State Capital Building to pay their respects to the men and women who served our country.
Veterans and their family members filled the Old House Chamber for a special ceremony sponsored by the USS Kidd Veterans Memorial. Vets from World War II all the way to Iraqi Freedom were on hand.
It was a chance for the public to honor those who have fought for their continuing freedom.
"I think it's a chance to honor all our veterans for their services and what this country stands for," said Korean War vet Doug Walker.
The USS Kidd staff and visitors also made cards to send to deployed troops for the holidays.
