Iberville Parish is accepting photographs of armed forces veterans for display on the Iberville Wall of Veterans.
The Wall of Veterans, at Iberville Veterans Memorial in Plaquemine, honors veterans and active-duty military personnel with ties to the parish. It includes more than 1,800 photos of veterans with their names and military branches.
The display will open Saturday and remain on view for a month after the parish’s Veteran’s Day ceremony on Nov. 11.
For online submission, log on to the Iberville Parish website at http://www.ibervilleparish.com. Look on the home page for the section on submitting a photo for the Veterans Wall.
Photos also may be dropped off for scanning at the parish libraries in Plaquemine, White Castle and East Iberville or at the Iberville Visitors Center in North Iberville.
Be sure you know in which branch of the military the veteran served: Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard or Marines. Photos submitted digitally must be high resolution.
