In 2013, John founded Project Fort Defiance, an initiative which began after Hurricane Sandy in order to take some of the practices of Civil Affairs, village stability operations, and ethnographic assessment, and adapt them for response and rebuilding in Coney Island and Red Hook, Brooklyn. The project has since aimed at showing how war veterans can be greater assets here in our backyard, by helping communities create maps of their own problems, solutions, knowledge, and resources.
