HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Congressman Steven Palazzo invited veterans around Hattiesburg to join him Friday night for a little crawfish and conversation.
A seafood celebration at the Lacy Kelly VFW Post featured mudbugs, shrimp, beans and potato salad.
Palazzo (R-4th Dist.) serves in the Mississippi National Guard and he's a veteran of the Persian Gulf War. He said he enjoys spending time with his fellow veterans.
"I served with a lot of these VFW members at Camp Shelby," Palazzo said. "The men and women here have definitely not only served their nation, but they're great community partners as well," he said.
Palazzo also served in the Marine Corps Reserves.
