BATON ROUGE – Attorney General Jeff Landry is expressing gratitude to his fellow Louisiana veterans, hoping that all in our State will join him in saying thanks to those who served in the armed forces as we celebrate Veterans Day tomorrow.

“Let us take time this Veterans Day to honor, celebrate, and pray for the brave men and women who have defended our Nation,” said Attorney General Landry. “As a veteran, I know how much they and their families have sacrificed to protect our freedoms and God-given rights.”

Attorney General Landry is also using the holiday to remind veterans and service members of frauds and scams targeting them. “As Attorney General, I have and will continue doing all that I can to help protect our military community from being exploited.”

Attorney General Landry encourages all active duty service members, reserve members, and veterans in Louisiana to review his office’s Resource Guide for Service Members and Veterans.

Attorney General Jeff Landry is a veteran of Desert Storm and left the military with the rank of Sergeant. He received the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, a National Defense Ribbon, an Overseas Training Ribbon, and the Louisiana War Cross from his 11 years of service as a member of the Louisiana National Guard. His father also served in the National Guard, and his grandfather was a tail gunner in World War II.
