BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44) — Veterans and current service men and women were celebrated at a special Veterans Day mass at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Baton Rouge.
The service included a special honor guard and presentation of the colors. The choir sang patriotic songs. The idea of the mass show those who serve and veterans thanks.
"One reason it's important to pull marines together and all branches of the service so that we can continue to show others that we still care and still remember," Ernest Watson, Veteran, said. "I've had a couple of kids this morning come up and say thank you. It means a lot. I told them they are the reason we did what we did."
