The Veteran community outreach nonprofit group, Once Was Inc., was founded in 2018 by Petty Officer Michael Edmond, also known as “DJ N.V. Navy Vet” and his wife Racquel. The couple’s mission is to give back to the nation’s service members and their immediate families. The focus of Once Was Inc is to assist Veterans who don't have access to a military facility.

This weekend Once Was Inc is giving back to the Veterans in Calcasieu Parish with an initiative they started, "Service Saturdays'' to assist service men and women that live 50+ miles away from a military facility. Saturday, November 12, will be the 1st annual event where they will be giving away holiday turkeys (while supplies last) to Veterans in SWLA! It will all take place at Rouses Market #80 at 5665 Nelson Road in Lake Charles from 11 am to 1 pm. Please note holiday turkeys are for Veterans only and a military ID is required.

This event is being sponsored by: DJ N.V.Navy Vet, L’auberge Casino Resort Lake Charles, Louisiana State Troopers – Troop D, Rouses Market, and Southwest Beverage. For more details about Once Was Inc events, and how to donate or volunteer visit See event flyers below:
