Not Home For the Holidays, Louisiana Veterans Coming Home, Authors Alford and Bridges Discuss LONG SHOT

Not Home For the Holidays Congress recently approved an additional $1.25 billion in flood recovery aid for the state. The total amount is still nearly $2.5 billion short of what state officials requested. Still, thousands of Louisiana residents continue to pick up pieces, short on money and solutions and still waiting for assistance. As part of LPB’s continuing flood recovery coverage, senior producer Kevin Gautreaux visited with some families still waiting to return home for the holidays.
