The Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs is asking Louisianans to show love and support to the more than 600 veterans living in state-run homes by writing letters.

LDVA Secretary COL Joey Strickland announced the launch of a new initiative called Project LOVE (Love Our Veterans Every day). The department says the letters will offer encouragement to veterans especially during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our veterans are among our state’s and nation’s most priceless treasures,” COL Strickland said. “Writing a letter to them to show them we care is a small token of our appreciation for their service and sacrifice. I encourage all Louisianans throughout this summer to reach out to a veteran living in one of our five veterans homes.”

Louisianans can address their letters to Project LOVE and send them to one or more of the state's five veterans homes.

The homes’ addresses are as follows:

Louisiana Veterans Home
4739 Highway 10
Jackson, LA 70748

Northeast Louisiana Veterans Home
6700 Highway 165 North
Monroe, LA 71203

Northwest Louisiana Veterans Home
3130 Arthur Ray Teague Parkway
Bossier City, LA 71112

Southeast Louisiana Veterans Home
4080 W. Airline Highway
Reserve, LA 70084

Southwest Louisiana Veterans Home
1610 Evangeline Road
Jennings, LA 70546
