Disabled Veterans of Louisiana are taking steps to provide a brighter future for young boys and girls in the ArkLaTex.

Veterans with the Shreveport-Bossier Chapter recently donated $5,000 to the Bossier Sheriff's Young Marines program. 

Earlier this year the program was denied federal grant funding when Sheriff Julian Whittington refused to remove voluntary prayer and God from the program. 

Whittington said, "Knowing these men gave so much for their country and are now giving to support young men and women in our Young Marines program is very humbling and rewarding."
