Retired veteran Lieutenant General Russel Honoré leads The GreenARMY, an alliance of organizations working on environmental issues in Louisiana. He’s known nationally as the take-charge (and hard charging) military man who brought order and sanity to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, where local and national agencies were slow to act. Honoré now gives talks on leadership and preparedness, and has written two books on those subjects. He specializes in mobilizing concerned citizens who wish to make a change, and in educating communities about the severity of pollution in their areas. He believes that the ultimate act of patriotism is “service in our own communities,” and that environmental protection should be considered a part of national security. Honoré was born and raised in Lakeland, Louisiana, and served 37 years in the United States Army.
