DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

One day after Baton Rouge celebrated Veterans Day, a Livingston Parish community welcomed together the men and women who've served our country.

All day Saturday, veterans got together at the Immaculate Conception Church in Denham Springs to share stories and enjoy each other's company.

“I love this particular city and how patriotic everybody is, but you have all these branches of service and of course you have the cadets that come out here as well, so it's great to see that trans-generational interaction going on between the veterans that led the way for us and inspired us to serve and then the future generations of potential veterans,” said Alex Juan of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Louisiana VA says the August flooding affected many veterans, some of which are still in need of a place to go.
