Thursday morning in Pensacola, Florida started with two call-in radio interviews—the first in Pensacola with WCOA and the second with WFLA in Tallahassee. In between those interviews while reading headlines, we found another CVA op-ed in TownHall.com. So, before event leaving the hotel in the morning, we had three media hits! Later in the morning, Darin Selnick (an Air Force veteran, CVA organizing committee member, and VA expert who joined us the night before) and Bev Perlson did a TV interview with WEAR-TV, the ABC affiliate in Pensacola. After a great morning of local media coverage, we hit the road for Tallahassee.

Tuesday morning started with a quick drive to Fayetteville, NC—home of Fort Bragg and the 82nd Airborne Division. After a group interview in-studio at WFNC AM-640 Radio, we headed over to our morning event—and what a great event it was! The generous owners of Pilgrim’s Journey Book Store—just outside of Fort Bragg—hosted a pancake breakfast, and we had over 100 veterans and military families join us.

Another great couple off days on the tour. Sunday started in Richmond with church services, thanks to a gracious invite from COL (Ret.) Barton Campbell. We then had an event with parishioners that was covered by the local ABC affiliate (WRIC-TV). After which we drove to Norfolk, where we spent Sunday evening. While in Norfolk, we stopped by the The Virginian-Pilot to grab a copy of Saturday’s paper, which included an op-ed from CVA on the VA Backlog.

After a great day in New York City yesterday, day two of the tour started in Washington, DC — an early morning once again. Fueled by copious amounts of coffee, our crew formed outside the RV @ 6am—where introductions were made.

As I write this, we’re on our way to Washington, DC to prepare for three big events in Virginia tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing lots of vets, military families, and patriotic Americans at every stop.
