Bossier Sheriff’s office honors WWII vets serving on POSSE


Bossier Sheriff’s Office honors members of its Posse who served their country during World War II with a segment of video interviews from those who have been dubbed “The Greatest Generation” for growing up during the Great Depression and fighting in World War II.

“As we prepare for our 2 nd Annual “In God We Trust” rally on July 4th, we wanted to pay special tribute to our veterans who serve on our Posse, especially those who fought for our freedom during World War II,” said Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington.

The six men, ranging in age from 86 to 94, Bill Breeland, Herb Dunlop, Ray Urban, Albert Turner, John Williams and Ken Myers Sr., discuss the war and life at home, patriotism, service on the Posse and their faith.
