For the last few days we've all been watching the devastation. Hubby and I keep saying they just need to send in the Marines. They're the ones that bail this country and others out in a heartbeat. They have the training, the means and are quick to mobilize.
The Marines are a contained unit. In a battalion you'll find helipcopters, boats and Amphibious Vehicles....food, water, medics...everything. They have enough to last for weeks if sent into battle...or life saving as in needed in New Orleans.
Jewl, probably knows, as well as I do...and Bethy's sister...they send them in when all else fails. Thank God...literally for this fine force. I'm not sure how many infantry battalions they're sending in, but throughout the day we'll know.
Candy Man had to draw up some briefs on the assets he has. I'm sure he won't go. It looks like they're going full force. My hubby is a Major (active duty)...but here in Nashville he overseas the reserves components. He and his superiors are all active. So, they really know what something like this takes. They PRACTICE MISSIONS LIKE THIS!
I continue to pray. I mean really pray on my knees. This is America. WE can airlift and drop food to Tsunami victims in 2 days...get tent cities built in a heart beat...and we need to get this taken care of!
God Bless all these people. Please God feed them and get them where they need to be. Bless the souls who have died in this horrific disaster. God Bless Everyone struggling to stay alive and waiting still to be saved. Wrap your arms around them, protect them...and please God give them peace. Please Lord..give strength to all the men and women volunteering. They need your guidance, your strength...patience.
Ok..so it took me an hour to type this. I don't have any wit left right now. Maybe I'll be better after coffee. I just want to pack up my car and bring them something.To thing this is America and we can't figure this out yet. Ok..I'm done. My brain is hurting.
CAt....I'm soooo glad you're well and in one piece! Your homes seem to have held up too. Sooooo soooo happy for you!
