Written by on May 29, 2024

Nearly 19 years after Hurricane Katrina, twin brothers A’Mari and J’Mari Reynolds, saved as infants by US Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, have honored his legacy by integrating his influence into their futures. In the chaos following the 2005 hurricane, Honoré rescued the dehydrated and starving babies, who were being carried by their mother, Alexandria Wheeler, through the devastated streets of New Orleans.

Now 18, the twins recently reconnected with Honoré via video call before their high school graduation. A’Mari plans to join the United States Marine Corps, while J’Mari aims to study automotive engineering. Both brothers expressed deep gratitude for Honoré’s life-saving intervention, acknowledging how his actions shaped their lives. Honoré, retired and 76, reflected on the significance of their encounter and praised Wheeler for her perseverance.

Their reunion highlights a profound narrative of survival, gratitude, and the enduring impact of Honoré’s heroism during one of America’s most catastrophic natural disasters.
