NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The state’s office of veteran affairs is launching Project LOVE, an initiative to show veterans love and support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The office is asking Louisianans to write to more than 600 veterans who live in Louisiana’s five state-run veterans’ homes.
“Our veterans are among our state’s and nation’s most priceless treasures,” Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary COL Joey Strickland said. “Writing a letter to them to show them we care is a small token of our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. I encourage all Louisianans throughout this summer to reach out to a veteran living in one of our five veterans’ homes.”
LOVE stands for "love our veterans every day."
Louisianans can address their letters to Project LOVE and send them to one or more of our five veterans’ homes. The homes’ addresses are as follows:
