The Louisiana Airborne Memorial Bridge Monument was installed on October 20, 1990 by the Acadiana Chapter of the 82nd Airborne Division Association at the Atchafalaya National Heritage Area Welcome Center in Louisiana. The monument is to honor the service of all airborne military personnel.
It also commemorates the naming of the 18.5 mile elevated bridge on interstate I-10 that travels over the Atchafalaya Swamp as the Louisiana Airborne Memorial Bridge.
On a side note we drove on the bridge and WOW. It was impressive, but I was freaked out the whole time. I’m not a big fan of bridges to begin with and this one just went on and on and on and if it fell I’m sure I would end up gator food!
