Women Veterans of Louisiana extend their heartfelt sympathies in the passing of Ms. Helen Ellis, U.S. Air Force veteran. Here is a poem that we
generally read at the veterans graveside service and present to the family:

She is a woman veteran
Whose service was true
She proudly served
The Red, White and Blue

She gave a part of her life
So others could be free
And without any hesitation
She joined unselfishly

She did her job well
With Honor and Pride
And served her great country
With the men alongside

We're proud today to know
That although she is gone
She goes on to glory
After a job "well done"

And so, "Our Dear Sister'
We salute you today,
A special Airmen laid to rest
In this quiet, solemn way.

Inspired by: God
Written by: Women Veterans of Louisiana

The Final Salute

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to our Sister in Arms, Helen Ventura Ellis To her family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Helen. And to Helen it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank her for her dedicated and selfless service she rendered to her country during the Vietnam War while serving as a nurse in the U. S. Air Force. Helen, you are a true patriot, who served with honor and distinction. We bid you a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,261 military veteran Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 233 veterans of VFW Post 2238 in Shreveport, Louisiana, we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Helen's family and loved ones.
