Veterans Coming Home – Flood Recovery

The catastrophic Louisiana floods of 2016 have seriously impacted residents across the state including veterans.  The state’s only private Veterans’ Home in Louisiana is the Magnolia Care Center in Baton Rouge.  Owner Byron Comeaux hopes to reopen his facility within the next few weeks.  The Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs (LDVA) says there are financial assistance funds available through the Military Family Assistance Fund.  LDVA Asst. Sec. Alfred Leger and Byron Comeaux are in the studio to discuss these important issues that veterans are facing.  Continued local support for Veterans Coming Home is provided by Entergy.
