You can watch this video of the American Veterans Traveling Tribute arriving in Bossier City, LA Wednesday, June 7th on mute and you'll still get chills!

This near life sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington will be open to the public to pay their respects Thursday, June 8th at 2pm through Wednesday, June 14th at 2pm thanks to the City of Bossier, KTBS and Margaritaville Casino. The display will be set up in the north parking lot at Margaritaville and available to the public 24/7. The video above features members of the Bossier Parish Sheriff's Office and posse members as well as folks from the Louisiana State Police, the Patriot Guard and area motorcycle clubs and military veterans as they escort the exhibit to Bossier City.

This is an amazing event for our community and we extend our thanks to the City of Bossier, KTBS and Margaritaville Casino for helping to make this available in our community. Not all of us are able to travel to Washington D.C. to pay our respects. There will be tracing paper and pencils available to trace your loved one's name and keep as a momento. I can't think of anything more precious!

Big thanks to Dep. Rod White from the Bossier Sheriff’s Office for such a beautiful video.
