General Honoré is chairman of the Louisiana Bicentennial Commission, a board member of the Louisiana Recovery Foundation and a member of the National Academy of Public Administration. He is the author of "Survival: How a Culture of Preparedness Can Save You and Your Family from Disasters" and "Leadership in the New Normal," which details how to be an effective leader in the 21st century. He retired in 2008 after 37 years of active service with the U.S. Army.
