Honor Awareness Mardi Gras Fundraiser With DJ Navy Vet
Navy Veteran Petty Officer Michael Edmond and his wife, longtime educator Racquel Edmond. Have dedicated their lives to honoring U.S. Veterans. The military couple started Once Was Inc. because they recognized many veterans need the services and resources that only a military base can provide. So, they work with Veterans across the country, helping them to reestablish the connection and reap the benefits and services they have earned.
It's carnival season, and Petty Officer Michael Edmond, also known as "DJ Navy Vet," is gearing up to host his Annual Honor Awareness Mardi Gras Fundraiser with proceeds from this year's event, benefiting homeless Veterans. The Veteran DJ who gives a "Jam" about our Veterans/military will be on the 1s and 2s as his float cruises through Mardi Gras parades in Carencro and Lake Charles!
The purpose is the celebrate the many organizations (listed below) in SWLA that honor and support local Veterans, raise awareness about Once Was Inc., and provide funds to benefit homeless Veterans. See the event flyer and learn more details about this annual event below. Join DJ Navy Vet live on the "Honor Awareness Krewe Float" at the following Mardi Gras Parades:
