OPELOUSAS, La. (AP) — The long-awaited St. Landry Parish Veterans Memorial will hold its formal dedication ceremony Wednesday.

The project, located on Louisiana Highway 182 south of Opelousas, has been in the works for 10 years.

The Walk of Honor, lined with engraved paving bricks honoring local veterans, has been completed.

Pat Mason-Guillory, who has headed the project, tells The Advertiser there are two other walkways where more bricks can be added.
