Salute To Veterans

Iberville Parish has long respected and admired the service and sacrifice of our country’s veterans. Committed to doing more to honor local veterans, the parish constructed a beautiful, moving veterans memorial with the support of the Iberville Parish Council, and a generous donation from the Dow Chemical Company.

The award-winning Veteran’s Memorial was dedicated in grand style on November 11, 2008 with a parade and performances by the 40-piece Marine Corps Reserve Band, military color guards, an F-15 Air Force fly-over, and a moving ceremony. Each Veteran’s Day since 2008, Iberville Parish has continued the tradition of honoring veterans at the site through Iberville’s Salute To Veterans event held every November.
