Bossier Chamber’s military appreciation breakfast to honor local units


The Bossier Chamber of Commerce will honor the men and women of all branches within the military during May — National Military Appreciation Month.

As a part of the celebration, the Bossier Chamber of Commerce will host the Military Appreciation Breakfast, presented by Barksdale Federal Credit Union. The event is aimed to educate the community about the local units serving in their back yard, and also provides insight into various jobs that military members perform each day.

Local units will be nominated for recognition and the top selected units will receive the Unit of Excellence award, with awards sponsored by Willis-Knighton Health System.

The breakfast is set for Thursday, May 19 at Margaritaville Resort Casino and doors open at 8 a.m. with the program at 8:30. Members of the Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force will all be on hand at the event.

There are a limited number of tickets and tables available with tickets at $25 and tables of eight for $500. Tickets can be purchased online at
