Follow author Rob Gaudet as he tells the gripping origin story of Cajun Navy Ground Force—a group of Louisianian civilians who band together to perform heroic acts of disaster relief. Cajun Navy Ground Force recounts how, beginning with the devastating flooding in 2016, the organization has provided assistance to disaster victims through technology and social media, and how the group works to focus national media attention on those in need. Learning how to operate within the guidelines of official authorities, Gaudet coordinated countless volunteer efforts through Cajun Navy Ground Force, from donation drives to search-and-rescue missions. The organization continues to teach communities across the country how to apply the same strategies of citizen-led relief to their disasters. Witness emotional rescues, understand how residents were able to rebuild in the face of tremendous tragedy, and find out how you can help in the next catastrophe.
