Caddo Parish veterans have a new place they can go for assistance.
The new Caddo Parish Veterans’ Service Office is now open. It’s on Creswell Avenue — right near the Parish Health Unit. The office had been in the City Hall Annex on Murphy Street, but that building is scheduled to be torn down. So the parish had to find other accommodations. The Veterans’ Service Office provides support and services for veterans, their widows, and their children — filing thousands of claims and securing millions of dollars in VA payments. The Parish Commission has also added a veterans’ portal to its website where you can post information about Caddo Parish veterans, living or dead, and search the database of those postings.
