2008 Republican National Convention, St. Paul MN

In August 2008, Upper River Servies (URS) partnered with the U.S. Coast Guard by providing the Coast Guard with a temporary docking area from which to run their security operations for the 2008 Republican National Convention in St. Paul, MN. URS created a docking area for the 12 boats and helped transfer the Coast Guard vessels to the Mississippi River.  In addition, URS used one of our boats, the J.L. Fleming, to assist in training operations for the Coast Guard.  Watch video
