We always see the pictures of the destruction on the news. Destruction makes for good headlines in today's world. We never really see what goes on after though. The rescuers and volunteers who come and help pick up the pieces are rarely the highlight on any news channel. If all you ever saw was what the news displayed, you would be led to believe that the coast was simply left a disaster or that some little elves came and did the clean up. Most of us who live here, know better.
I offer my sincere thanks, not only to Anthony Veltri for sharing his experiences through this book, but to every man and woman who came down to the coast and helped put it back together. This book offers a behind the scenes look at the people who came to our aid, and the methods and tools they used to get the job done. Mother Nature will always come back to put us in our place, and it is a very humbling and awe inspiring experience, to stand in the eye of the storm, but it can never compare to the feelings inspired when I see the way people band together to help one another in the aftermath. That is where hope is found.
I work in the health care field and will be sending a link to your book to the corporate office to see how we can utilize its importance. Distributing all the literature with checklists of things to have on hand is very important. However, it really drives home the importance of preparation based on the pictures of actual distruction from the forces of nature. Do you have any picture downloads that can be used for presentations? We will be going into hurricane season shortly and a presentation format would be good to take to home owner association meetings, church meetings, company meetings, etc.
The county I live in has set up some shelters that are pet friendly. It was realized during Katrina that their are people who just won't leave their pets. Do not leave your pets to fend for themselves.
I googled to see if there was a national day honoring search and rescue people and their dogs but did not find one. We really need to honor their sacrifices.
Thank you for your contribution to get this information out there.

A really good book should be written about the police operations of the New Orleans Police sixth district and the real truth of what happened at the Convention Center.

Story regarding Katrina rescue workers and their experiences. Good to know that we can count on each other and not so much the government as again made clear by Hurricane Sandy.Published on December 31, 2012 by GNL
