    Default The Cajun Navy

    I don't know how many of you have followed the news of the rescuing of the flood victims of Harvey; but, this group has been a real stand out in the sea of destruction and heartbreak...just a bunch of "good ole boys and girls" and "rednecks" seeing what was necessary and doing it. I am proud of them and their contributions in these devastating situations.

    A group of ballsy folks doing the right thing. They deserve more recognition that they have received.

    It is great to see people come together in times like this, to bad we could not be like this more often.

    There is also the "Cajun Army" and the "Cajun Gravy."

    Not only are these folks doing all this for free, many of them are away from their jobs--hopefully those employers who can will continue to pay them in their absence while they are helping Hurricane Harvey victims.
