Veterans Day Message from Mayor Alsandor

To the great citizens of Opelousas,

On behalf of the City of Opelousas, I would like to wish and send each of you and your families a safe and enjoyable Veterans Day.

For me, Veterans Day is an important day of thanks.  I would like to offer my deepest gratitude to the past, present and future men and women, who have given service to this city, community, state, and country, especially those families who have lost someone while serving in the United States Armed Forces.

Your courage and sacrifices are truly appreciated. We are able to enjoy the pleasures of life And liberties because of this dedication. Again, on behalf of myself and the city’s administration, we give you honor, thanks, blessed prayers and continued praise to all the brave men and women who have served.

As we honor these heroic individuals, let us also renew our commitment to support initiatives that lend assistance and honor our Veterans.  Two local ones are the St. Landry Parish Veterans Memorial and the St. Landry Parish Funeral Honor Guard Services.
