Vernon Parish Veterans Plaza | Leesville, Louisiana

Project Vernon Parish | Places of Interest

Vernon Parish is the proud home of the Joint Readiness Training Center & Fort Polk, the largest military base in the state of Louisiana.  The military tradition in this parish is strong and dates back to the 1940s with the Great Louisiana Maneuvers  which took place in West Louisiana and East Texas in 1941 to prepare the United States for WWII.

The Veterans Plaza serves as a reminder to all its residents of the honor and sacrifices made by our Veterans, present and past.

Located in Historic Downtown Leesville, the plaza is open to all and boasts a number of memorial walls depicting the names of local veterans.
