Area guardsmen patrol the Big Easy

Both men agree the work of a policeman in a city the size of New Orleans presents a different set of circumstances that they face as correctional officers in Lincoln Parish.
“This is nowhere near what we would do on a normal basis,” Sims, 23, said. “And after doing it, I have no desire to do it on a regular basis.”
Not Mack.
“I’m kind of thinking about changing my line of work to this side of law enforcement,” Mack, also 23, said. “I find it very interesting.”
The two men are home this weekend, earning a three-day pass before heading back to New Orleans Monday.
