ZACHARY- Hundreds of people showed up at the Port Hudson National Cemetery to pay respects to the fallen soldiers that rest there.

"You've got a hundred and fifty years of men and women fighting for our freedoms. So without them doing that, we would not be able to do what we're doing here today," said Rex Kern, the cemetery's director.
