‘Cajun Navy’ races from Louisiana to Texas, using boats to pay it forward – Orlando Sentinel

August 30, 2017

Volunteers don’t ask for permission, for approval, for clearances, or for recognition.  They see a need and fill it.  I saw lots of them on the highway.  They were packed between the line trucks coming to repair power and phone lines.  There were trucks carrying large diesel generators, and small pickups filled with bottled water and canned goods.  They will pick up the slack until the government gets its act together.  Godspeed to the “Cajun Navy” and their brothers. -RM

“the “Cajun Navy,” a volunteer online grassroots effort that, along with the “Cajun Coast Search and Rescue Team,” roared into Pasadena, Texas, on Sunday. They came in high-clearance pickup trucks with bass boats and pirogues like the Cajun Cavalry, ready to help search and rescue efforts alongside first responders who were inundated with thousands of calls across the region.”

    No “hearings” or “committee meetings” necessary or desired. Interesting.
