LHSAA member schools should consider recognizing our veterans during an upcoming home football game nearest to Veteran’s Day.
This year, Veteran’s Day will be celebrated by our nation on Monday, November 11, 2013. With this in mind, consider honoring veterans during the tenth week of football season which falls Nov. 7 – 9, 2013.
Our veterans are true American heroes and should be recognized and honored at each opportunity available. We are of the opinion that it is one of the most respectful things we can do as American citizens to pay homage to our veterans and ask them to stand and be recognized for their service to our country.
Louisiana high school students would certainly receive an important lesson in patriotism and good citizenship as they join their families and friends with pride in honoring those who have served our country and who continue to fight for our freedom today.
Thank you for your consideration of this request to honor past and present members of our armed forces for their selfless acts of service to our great nation. If you decide to participate, feel free to let us know!
