The 2017 VFW National Convention on July 22nd – 25th in New Orleans, Louisiana

Our involvement with the National VFW Convention started last year in Charlotte, North Carolina. When we had the opportunity to attend the convention in New Orleans, Louisiana, we couldn’t pass it up. Just as with the W.A.V.E.S conference in Phoenix a couple of weeks before, dozens of contacts were made to bring us to many different locations over the next couple of years. With this being our fourth visit to New Orleans, we witnessed several attendees and locals revisit us from past events while making many new friends. One of the many highlights was meeting R+L Carriers own Dave Schmidt. Being a local, Dave took us on an amazing tour of New Orleans and surrounding communities. Thanks Dave! Next year is looking to be incredible with reaching our tribute to hundreds of thousands of people, just from the planning we will be doing from this event alone!
