Honoring Deceased Veterans

B'nai Zion is very proud of the members and family members who have served in any branch of the military. One of the ways that we honor the deceased veterans is to place Jewish War Veterans flags at their graves. B'nai Zion has three cemeteries in Shreveport where we place graves. 

1946 Fighting for America: A Record of the Jewish Men and Women in the Armed Forces of Shreveport, Louisiana from 1946 (Click on the book cover on the left to read the booklet.)

Below is a current list of the deceased veterans (sorted by first name) with connections to B'nai Zion. They are not all buried in the Jewish cemeteries in Shreveport.  Please let us know if there are other names we should add to our list, even if they are not buried in our cemeteries.
