Many Shreveport-Bossier restaurants and businesses are offering discounts and freebies to our military service men and women on this Veterans Day.

There have been several ceremonies here in our area already. The State Fair of Louisiana hosted an Honor Parade yesterday, with a ceremony at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club. Local public schools are holding assemblies throughout the day honoring our local military. And Centenary College kicked off a special tribute in the Hurley Music Building at 11 this morning.

There's at least one more event to come after today: W.T. Lewis Elementary is hosting a Military Family Appreciation Breakfast for all military families associated with the school. That takes place in the school gym at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday (Nov. 13).

We'd also like to take a moment to thank all of you who have served - or are serving - our country. We appreciate everything you have done for us.
