Cajun Navy Ground Force brings you the very first Tornado destruction in Virtual Reality.

Our mission is to wake up the good citizens of America to the undeserved predicament for so many elderly, single women, underserved communities and children caused by mother nature. Natural disasters are experienced every year by tens of thousands of our fellow citizens. When a disaster is happening, it’s like the Super Bowl. Everyone is watching. We all consume it with bated breath LIVE as it happens through the news stations and via social media. Hurricanes. Tornados, Wildfires. Floods. Snowstorms. Earthquakes. You feel sad and hopeful for the people enduring the unthinkable. The loss of everything. The loss of your safe place, your sanctuary, your archive of memories… the loss of your home.

Unfortunately, as time passes the social media algorithms and news cycles decide that you no longer want to see the plight of disaster survivors, and we all forget. But just because we don’t see it, just because we forget, just because it’s not on our social media feeds as we scroll doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It doesn’t mean that families are made instantly whole again. It doesn’t mean that the struggle is over. When in fact the worst for tens of thousands is just beginning. The event lasts a day or two, but the lack of cameras focused on the journey of recovery that can take many arduous years doesn’t mean that people are undeserving of your assistance.

Our organizing is a social media channel that utilizes Facebook, TikTok, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube to tell their ongoing story. We’re a media organization whose goal is to keep the plight of survivors in front of good American’s who want to help. We utilize your good will donations of time and money to engage our staff and volunteers so we can extend generosity to those who NEED help. And there are tens of thousands who need help.

We arrive as soon as we possibly can after a disaster and establish a safe place in a Walmart parking lot for our team, other non-profits, survivors to gather and begin meeting urgent needs. We call it a Swift Action Force Emergency Camp. We based the idea on the mobile army surgical hospital concept made famous in the 70’s and 80’s by a television show called M.A.S.H.. Our concept does the same thing, meets urgent needs on the front line, but our concept is called SAFE Camp.

Along with SAFE Camp and long after it is wrapped up we send trained staff and good volunteers into the community in a highly coordinated effort to assist survivors in whatever way we can. We have a remote team of logistics and communication specialists who we call the Air Team, that provide vetting, ground support, intelligence research and any other information based intel that is needed by the teams going into communities to help. We see this role as caring for members of the community in need. So, instead of volunteers, we call this group Community Caregivers.

This video (embedded below) was designed to place you in the middle of arguably the worst tornado outbreak in American history. As natural disasters become more frequent, we will utilize the incredible marvel of technology, the internet, social media, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, NFT’s (non-fungible tokens), the metaverse, cryptocurrency, artificial intelligence any technology we can employ to spread the word of those in need and create new ways and channels for assistance to be provided. We will innovate and deliver it in ways no one has yet accomplished. The video below is unique. It’s the first to be produced of tornado damage for viewing inside of the metaverse. Read below to find out how you can experience for yourself, just as thousands of families recently did, the destructive nature of a mile wide tornado.

On December 11, 2021 Kentucky, Tennessee and four others states were struck by 59 tornados. One tornado was over 1 mile wide and travelled 175 miles. This horrendous tragedy took over 70 Americans lives only a few weeks before Christmas.  The rare disaster caused destruction that we felt needed to be seen to be believed.

With the wonders of technology, we’ve developed this emotional interactive 360 degree video which places you in the middle of the carnage caused 50+ tornadoes. Look around. Imagine this to be your neighborhood.  Instructions for viewing on your Oculus can be found here.

Imagine going to the hospital but there are no nurses, the only medical care comes from a doctor. That's the way we have done disaster response in the past. There are lots of important specialists (doctors) who shoe up to assist, but no one to do the less critical care things like assisting with cleanup, providing delivery services, tarping your roofs, connecting you to resources and getting to know you and bring you hope you hope in the process. That's what Ground Force Community Caretakers do. We stay behind after a disaster and assist with any kind of less skilled labor that we can. A Community Caretakers mission is to bring hope to individuals and help them regain a sense of control over their lives. Sometimes it's just a hug, which can mean the world to someone who's just lost their safe place, their sanctuary, their archive of memories, their home.

Yesterday we sifted for 2.5 hours hoping to help this wonderful family find whatever could be recovered from the ashes. Luckily, no one was home when the fires started but this only meant they had no opportunity to grab what they could before their home was unfortunately lost.We started off by getting an overview of where certain rooms were and what areas to start looking for precious family items. We suited up and the guys were ready to head in and start searching immediately. We were able to find their daughter’s artwork that she signed, the tin cans holding their children’s first footprints, some medals that were unfortunately melted down, and pieces of a perfectly intact nativity scene.They were so grateful to have our help and we were so happy to be there.

This is Superior♥️Now, take a good look. A good, hard look at how beautiful this landscape is. If you look closely, you’ll see where embers found home to entire neighborhoods. While they destroyed blocks and blocks of homes, they also skipped over entire towns and left them completely untouched. It’s unbelievable. The power of this fire was unlike anything these people have ever seen. Winds up to 100 mph carried these embers and flames projecting them like fire from a blow torch. The sights we have seen while here in Colorado are gut wrenching. But these people are so grateful. They are tired, overwhelmed and emotionally exhausted, but most of all, they are grateful. They feel blessed to be safe and still standing. Their hearts are in the process of healing and we are here to be their backbones. Colorado, you will come back better than ever!

Welcome back to Cajun Country from Kentucky, Chad Chiasson. We met with Chad and his dad Matt Chiasson, owner of the The Grouse Room at Crawfish Time on Ridge and heard about the successes and lessons learned directly from Chad. This was our first tornado deployment and Chad and Jay and the whole team did a great job helping. In all we assisted over 80 families. The team stayed through Christmas and New Years. The air team, was there providing remote logistics support alone the way, every day. They worked through cold, snow, rain... Just an amazing testament to the power of good humans given a chance to help. We're proud of Chad and appreciate his dad's and the Lafayette Lousiana communities support as we bring the Cajun brand of hospitality to those who most need it, elderly and others who's lives have been disrupted by natural disasters. ❤️Support our efforts.. we are deployed in Colorado doing Ash Sifting right now and for the next few weeks. Here in Lafayette, we are going to clean up and get items at our warehouse staged and ready for our next deployment.Donate if you believe citizens can help their neighbors. GoCajunNavy.org/donate....

He jumped right in mucking out house and clearing debris! Never complaining once, Joe completed every task given to him.Joe has also just recently ran teams for our deployment out in Mayfield, Kentucky. He brought so much joy and a sense of comfort to all those we’ve helped as well as the volunteers. He holds a special place in all of our hearts and we are beyond blessed to call him family. He is always willing to give himself to others and continues to bless us with his kind heart and calming presence. Thank you for all that you do Joe!
