"Community service like this is just one way we show the Marine Corps values of honor, courage and commitment to our Young Marines," said Lt. Norman Craig, commanding officer of the Bossier Sheriff Young Marines. "We teach young men and women why it's important to remember the service and sacrifice of those who went before us," Craig, a former Marine, said. "Showing these youth how to honor our veterans during this Memorial Day and throughout the year is so important. It gives them a way to say thanks and salute those who fought for our freedom."
