Of the Calcasieu UDC Chapter #1519

Valery Doiron, Confederate Veteran
Marker Dedication ~ 9 October 2004

Long before the Ship Channel was dug off the coast of southwest Louisiana, a small family cemetery was used by the Doiron family. Now only accessible by boat, this cemetery still exists, but is now on an island. Heading to the island, chapter Vice President Lisa Reed hoists the Daughters Flag. Boat captain is Andrew, Lisa's husband.

A second boatload arrives and the ceremony begins with prayer by Jan Craven.

Flags are presented and posted by Color Bearers Charline Martin,
Brenda Reed, Joyce Bridges, Lisa Reed and Delma Briggs.

A history of each of the Confederate Flags is given by Lisa Reed.
