Ouachita County Judge Robbie McAdoo has designated September “Veterans and Patriot's Awareness and Appreciation Month”. Judge McAdoo says according to the VA's office of Actuary, there are currently 2,323 veterans in Ouachita County. The Judge says veterans and patriots will be honored throughout the month of September culminating with the Chamber of Commerce's Business after hours on September 15 from 5-7pm on the courthouse lawn with an appreciation meal and program.

Door prizes will be drawn for veterans and County Veterans Service Officer, Jim Bob Davis and others will be available to educate veterans on services available that they may not be aware of. Davis says his office is seeking names and information of veterans to celebrate this event. Information needed includes name, town of residence, branch of service, rank, countries served in, conflict served, years served and medals and awards.
