POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - Thanks to the generosity of the public, organizers are now able to start building a Veteran's monument in Pointe Coupee Parish.
The American Legion was hoping to sell 1,000 bricks to build the monument and have sold 800 so far. The 800 bricks are enough to set a ground breaking date for Veteran's Day, November 11, 2015.
Supporters have until December 1, 2015 to get their brick in the first order.

Each brick costs $100 and will be inscribed with the veteran's name and branch of service.
