Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — Memorial Day may have already passed this year, but it's never too late to honor our veterans. People came together on LSU's campus today to do just that.
The band played Taps, while organizers placed a wreath on the steps of the LSU War Memorial on the Parade Grounds.
During the ceremony, veterans made sure to remind everyone that it's always a good time to reflect and respect the sacrifice of those who've died in the line of duty.
"It's those men and women that paid the ultimate sacrifice for this nation - for our freedom,” stated General Glen Curtis with the National Guard. “That is what today is all about."
After the ceremony, veterans and all of those who came to pay their respects were invited to a luncheon.
