LSU honors veterans

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Former LSU students, faculty, and staff who lost their lives serving the country were honored.

There was a wreath-laying ceremony Friday and the playing of taps and a moment of silence for all troops who made sacrifices for their country.

The ceremony was scheduled to be on the parade grounds, but LSU leaders say the heavy rains this week forced the ceremony indoors.

LSU waited until Friday to honor fallen troops because technically May 30 is the traditional day for Memorial Day.
