Veterans Day


Veterans and community members are invited to a Veterans Day Ceremony being  sponsored by the USS KIDD Veterans Museum, in partnership with Secretary  of State Tom Schedler and Louisiana’s Old State Capitol, on Nov. 11th.

Veterans Day, originally called Armistice Day, was established to  commemorate the end of WWI. The cease-fire on the Western front began on “the  eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.”  Lunch plates will be provided to Veterans  Day guests in the Senate Chambers immediately following the ceremony.
The USS KIDD Veterans Museum celebrates Veterans Day to honor the brave men  and women, living and dead, who have fought America’s battles, past and  present. Veterans are encouraged to wear something that represents their military  branch, such as their uniform, a ball cap or even a small pin. All guests are  encouraged to wear something patriotic to show their support of our nation’s  heroes.
In addition to the ceremony, USS KIDD staff and visitors will be collecting  photos of local veterans for use in slideshow presentations that will honor  veterans throughout the year.
The USS KIDD Veterans Museum will be free to the public on Veterans Day.  USS KIDD ship tours will be free to veterans and available at the regular  admission price of: $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and $5 for children ages 5-12  to the general public.
