St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office participates in annual Veterans Day parade

The St. Bernard Sheriff’s Office joined forces with several other agencies, including Parish Government and the Fire Department, to participate in the parish’s annual Veterans Day parade held Nov. 11 in Chalmette, Sheriff James Pohlmann said.

Coordinated by St. Bernard Parish Government, the celebration is held each year to show appreciation for veterans of all branches of the military who have served in the past, as well as those who serve and protect today.

The parade, which began at 9:30 a.m. near the corner of West Judge Perez Drive and Old Hickory Avenue, disbanded at the Frederick J. Sigur Civic Center in Chalmette.  Several veterans participated in the parade, as well as school marching groups and Honor Guard, Color Guard and ROTC.

Immediately following the parade, parish officials honored veterans during a ceremony in front of the Veterans Monument at the Civic Center. All veterans received a light lunch from Rocky and Carlo’s Restaurant, sponsored by Gulf Coast Bank and Trust, which also provided the transportation for the veterans.
