Become a Member of American Legion Post 16



On Wednesday, November 11, 2009, American Legion Post 16 hosted a Veterans Day Celebration at the Veterans Memorial Plaza located at the St. Tammany Parish Justice Center in Covington, LA. Some of the distinguished guest were: Archbishop Philip Hannan, Parish President Kevin Davis, Covington Mayor Candance Watkins, Covington City Police Captain Richard Palmisano, 40&8 Grande Chef de Gare de la Louisianne Monsieur Terry Sharp and Louisiana Army National Guard SFC Richard McSaddin.  A Patriotic Musical Tribute was given by Woodlake Elementary (Ms. Stomp’s 3rd Graders).


After the Veterans Day Celebration the Post 16 Honor Guard held a prayer ceremony at the gravesite of our American Legion Post 16 namesake, Robert H. Burns at Covington No. 1 Cemetery.


Thanks to all who made this Veterans Day Celebration a huge success.
