Gov. John Bel Edwards joins veterans to cut the ribbon dedicating three parking spaces at BPCC for combat veterans.

Gov. John Bel Edwards was on hand as Bossier Parish Community College dedicated three parking spaces on campus to combat veterans in a ceremony on Dec. 7 — the 76th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“What unites uses so much greater than any differences that might divide us,” Edwards said at the ceremony. “That’s why it’s important that we give back, that we show some appreciation and respect to our veteran service members, especially those wounded in combat.”

Wounded Warriors Family Support offers Combat Wounded Parking Signs, free of charge, to establishments as a way of honoring and recognizing veterans. BPCC ordered three of the combat wounded parking signs, and BPCC Physical Plant painted special parking spaces outside of the Administration building (Building A), the Student Services Building (Building F), and the new Nursing and Allied Health Building (Building H).
