WASHINGTON, March 8, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Two new Truck Convoys are joining the People’s Convoy USA and the Freedom Convoy to protest mandates and Biden energy policies triggering high gas prices, according to Michael Letts, CEO of InVest USA, the company providing security and bulletproof vests to Convoy leaders.

The first two truck convoys met at the Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland and then circled the periphery of Washington, DC on the Beltway.

The two new truck convoys are expected to arrive on March 8 and 9 to join the two original convoys in Hagerstown, Maryland, and are currently considering taking matters a step further and actually entering Washington, DC city proper, according to Michael Letts, co-chairman of the Freedom Convoy and a spokesman for the combined convoys.

All four groups oppose government mandates, and the Biden Administration’s energy policies that the groups believe have caused gas prices to more than double.

Vehicles are not limited to trucks. Also included are Motorcyclists, SUVs, and other vehicles. Some are professional drivers. Others are moms and dads. Most are displaying American flags.

Stated Letts, “Convoy participants are aghast over Biden’s first act in office was to kill American energy independence by shutting down the Keystone Pipeline, and begin buying oil from Russia.”

Yahoo News reported 2500 vehicles traveled in a Convoy that began in Adelanto, California, and arrived in Maryland over the weekend.

The People’s Convoy, organized by Mike Landis of California, made several laps around DC on the Beltway, honoring traffic regulations, but it is unclear yet as to what may happen with the newer Convoys as they merge with the People’s Convoy and Freedom Convoy.

Michael Letts, is co-chairman of The Freedom Convoy USA, and president of the charity InVest USA. His South Carolina -based organization provides bulletproof vests for police officers and other first responders.
InVest USA is sponsoring a charitable race planned for the Summer of 2022, called Bulletproof Run, to raise funds for bulletproof vests for police officers.

Michael spoke at the Sylvan Theater/ Washington Monument on March 1, expressing the group’s grievances, preceding Biden’s State of the Union address.

Michael Letts stated, “First Responders across America are being harmed by these unconstitutional mandates and hampering their ability to protect and serve our communities. We need more first responders, not fewer. We can’t afford to lose a single hero. These mandates need to end now.”

In a joint statement by InVest USA, Letts stated, “Tragically, government mandates are imperiling the safety and well-being of the very citizens it was created to protect and serve. These mandates led to thousands of highly trained and skilled law enforcement, firefighters, and medics being terminated from their jobs without considering the impact on this and future generations. Most notable this week is the determination by the LA County Board of Supervisors in California to authorize the LA County Administrator to fire 4,000 LA County Sheriffs deputies who refused COVID-19 vaccination shots. At a time in America’s history of an all-time low morale and record spike in violent crime, it will be devastating to lose thousands of officers across the country for a mandate for a virus that has largely mutated and lost strength, according to experts.”

One central theme for Convoy participants is, “Do not put needless burdens on those who are a vital part of the supply chain. Thousands of truckers would rather be making deliveries than blocking highways in our already over-congested capital.” Nonetheless, a statement was needed to be made, thus the Convoy.

Time will tell if this US convoy will stay assembled as last as did the Freedom Convoy in Ottawa, Canada, that lasted 24 days. is the co-chairman of Freedom Convoy USA 2022 and CEO and Founder of, a national non-profit charitable organization based in Columbia, South Carolina. His group helps hundreds of communities provide thousands of bulletproof vests for their police forces through educational, public relations, sponsorship, and fundraising programs.
