THE REAL GUARDIANS. TRUE STORIES OF COAST GUARD HELICOPTER PILOTS & RESCUE SWIMMERS FOLLOWING HURRICANE KATRINA. Unconcerned with the issues of politics, ineptitude and blame, they did what had to be done.

Click to EnlargeAmerican history changed the morning of August 29th 2005; early that day Hurricane Katrina assaulted the Gulf Coast near the Louisiana and Mississippi borders. Between the pages of this compelling book are the chronicles of five Real Coast Guard Heroes who saved more than 500 lives from the deluge of New Orleans. These are the stories of the “people” and how they came to be over the stricken city of New Orleans in the hours and days after Katrina’s devastating rampage.

So Others May Live is the Motto that these selfless heroes live by. This well written-heartfelt book will leave you with a deep admiration for the brave men and women of the Coast Guard who are truly the Real Guardians of the United States.

The brave men and women of the United Stated Coast Guard serve our country everyday, standing-by to render assistance to their fellow countrymen. This book is more then the glory of their rescues, it delves into the people that chose a life of service saving and helping their fellow Americans. Reading their stories reveals more of what it takes and how fate brought them over the stricken city of New Orleans in the wake of Katrina. Armed with state-of-the-art helicopters, rescue equipment and superior training, these "Real Guardians" acted independent of direct supervision to accomplish milestones in Coast Guard History. Unconcerned with the issues of politics, ineptitude and blame that seemed to occupy the high-and-dry Monday-morning quarterback, they did what they were born to do...they went out and rescued those in need of saving.
