NATO boardmember John Dan Gielen, who is also chairman of Tobacco Plus Discount Outlet stores, based in Crowley, La., said: "The retailers in the tobacco business know that NATO is our there fighting for them everyday, and this industry is happy to support the association's trade show because everyone knows it will generate more resources for NATO to fight the tobacco battles. And since NATO is a non-profit organization, every penny generated from the show is put right back into tobacco legislative efforts. If you're a retailer, than I can't see why you won't support the show."
