|The Louisiana Technology Council writes, "The City has had a long-standing tradition of saluting military members in the local area in the form of an Armed Forces Day Luncheon (dating back to 1946). The luncheon was not on the schedule this year. However, the Greater New Orleans Council of Navy League has elected to host this year's luncheon not only to keep that tradition alive, but more importantly to honor those who have done so much over the course of the past year for our fair city and our great nation... We simply can't let that heroism and dedication go without taking time to say thanks to these wonderful servicemen and women for a job well done."|
So to honor our military, the LTC and the Navy League has elected to hit them up for $28/head if you're in uniform, to attend a luncheon in your honor. Way to go! I can't wait to be honored myself... I hope I can afford it!

Please come and show your appreciation both for those who performed heroically in rescue operations and continuously in neighborhood patrols throughout the Greater New Orleans area in the days, weeks and months following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, as well as those who serve their country both at home and abroad in the Global War on Terror.
