Regarding culturally offensive material, the Greater New Orleans Militaria Show is strictly following the Ohio Valley Military Society (OVMS) show rules, which do not exist to hinder the hobby of collecting original historical militaria, but to protect it. The goal is to properly place artifacts--Third Reich items in particular--within a historical context as souvenirs of a defeated foe, avoiding situations where the display of these items could be misinterpreted as glorification.
