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.

You can view the videos on Bossier Sheriff’s Office Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ pages/Bossier-Parish-Sheriffs- Office/432144946892537.

The “In God We Trust” rally will take place on Friday, July 4, from 1 – 4 p.m. at the Viking Drive Substation in Bossier City. Everyone is invited to the free event that will have hot dogs and drinks, children’s activities, patriotic and God-fearing music and much more.

These WWII veterans and Posse members will also be in attendance to be honored, and their video segments will be featured during the ceremony.

Here’s an interesting thought. Why is it that Louisiana and neighboring state Mississippi are always on the bottom of every national ranking involving virtually every aspect of a state’s quality of life? Yet casino gambling is widespread throughout both states at a level not found any place else in America outside of Las Vegas.

On April 28, citizens of Shreveport face a choice: Fund basic city services or plunge the city into fiscal chaos. It would have been inconceivable 20 years ago that routine tax renewals to fund the fire and police departments and other basic city services would not have the collective support of the city’s business, civic and political leadership.
