2017 Louisiana's Fallen Heroes Saluted 

The Louisiana Senate honors those Louisiana men and women serving in the United States military and thanks them and their families for their sacrifices in defense of our freedoms and liberties. In recognition of those sacrifices, members of the Louisiana Senate in 2005 decided to take time during the regular legislative session to recognize Louisiana's fallen heroes and the enormous sacrifice made by their families for this state and the nation. That practice has continued and carries on in the 2017 Regular Session with the following resolutions.
