Caddo Commissioner Ken Epperson has proposed replacing the confederate monument in front of the Caddo Courthouse with a World War II monument. Epperson's idea is to build a monument honoring the crew of the USS Golet, a submarine lost at sea during WW II. One of the crew members was from Caddo Parish and residents locally helped pay for the submarine through war bonds.

Epperson says that we need to get rid of the divisive confederate monument and put something together that we all can get behind and support. The issue is currently not on the Caddo Commission agenda but Epperson is hopeful the issue will be discussed at an upcoming meeting.
