I was honored to have shared my home with folks from Washington DC, Alabama, and Saint Louis. Pictured above are Steve and Hong Perry with Daniel and Sara Broaddus.
Steve retired from the Army as a medic after serving overseas in Iraq. He is presently teaching Leadership Tactics in the ROTC department at the University of South Alabama . His wife Hong had her own story to tell as she was a refugee from Vietnam.
Daniel served 2 tours in Vietnam as an Army sergeant. Today Dan is a 100 % disabled veteran with prostrate cancer that has been linked back to his exposure to agent orange while he was in Vietnam.
This festival was founded as a celebration of the local sandwich and the role it has played in New Orleans culinary culture. There’ll be three stages of music, an artist village, prizes and games at the children’s section, a po-boy history center, and without fail, the tastiest po-boys available in New Orleans. The festival is held on Oak Street and Carrollton Ave. Leave the car behind, it’s only a 20 minute streetcar from from Southern Comfort Bed and Breakfast.
