New Orleans – Quick Guide

In the Coast Guard world, orders are cut from winter until spring typically.  One of my friends, a fellow Coastie wife, had the unfortunate circumstance of her husband’s orders being pulled three, yes three, separate times.  Long story short, he ended up qualifying for Warrant Officer and was finally given official orders to New Orleans – I believe these will stick.

As a part of a new series, I will be highlighting a military city for those visiting or moving to the area.  Perhaps, it will even help those that currently live there discover their new “home” town.  I have heard such amazing things about this city and base all of my information off of reviews.
