2015 Advocacy Summit Highlights

 

Even though the severe weather forced NFDA to cancel the trip to Arlington National Cemetery during the 2015 NFDA Advocacy Summit, NFDA President Rob Moore, his wife Pat, and son Robert were still able to lay a wreath on behalf of all association members at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
