Today is Veterans Day and it's a time to thank all those brave men and women for their service to our country. These brave folk put their life on the line for our country and our freedom, and we will be forever indebted to them.

Today in Lake Charles, you can see the Avenue of Flags on display to celebrate Veterans Day. The display boasts an impressive 1080 American flags, the largest display of memorial flags in the United States.

The event coordinators invite Southwest Louisiana to come out and view the display. The event is free and open to the public.
