Iberville's Salute to Veterans

Iberville Parish President J. Mitchell Ourso, Jr. has long respected and admired the service and sacrifice of our country’s veterans. After he was elected Parish President, he committed to doing more to honor local veterans. Through his leadership, the support of the Iberville Parish Council, and a generous donation from the Dow Chemical Company, the parish constructed a beautiful, moving veteran’s memorial.

The award-winning Veteran’s Memorial was dedicated in grand style on November 11, 2008 with a parade and performances by the 40-piece Marine Corps Reserve Band, military color guards, an F-15 Air Force fly-over, and a moving ceremony.

Each Veteran’s Day since 2008, Iberville Parish has continued the tradition of honoring veterans at the site through Iberville’s Salute To Veterans event.
