The US Coast Guard was first on scene after Hurricane Katrina and took the lead in the rescue efforts. We all remember watching on television as helicopters hovered, lowering rescue swimmers onto rooftops to hoist survivors to safety.
Because I have made such cool connections in the Coast Guard, I've been able to snag an absolutely amazing video of many of those rescues. Seriously, it is an incredible video that will make you even more proud of our local Coasties. Stop by The City Wine Sellar anytime in the next three weeks or so to view it on the TV in the wine bar.
