After nearly 14 years of working to get a veterans cemetery established in northeastern Louisiana, local lawmakers, state and Rayville officials gathered Monday to view the progress and mark their calendars for a November opening.

Construction on the $7.3 million Northeast Louisiana Veterans Cemetery near Rayville began last year. It is expected to open before Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

Congressman Ralph Abraham, R-Alto, said, “We give all the respect in the world to veterans and we now have a place they can rest and hopefully be with the Lord. It’s a beautiful site and it will be good for Richland Parish and northeastern Louisiana to have such an impressive veterans cemetery right here.”
