Update from Haiti: Provide Help to the Fullest

January 27, 2010

As a member of the Armed Services, I am very proud of our humanitarian effort in Haiti. Not only did I arrive in Haiti with the permission of my commanders at the 173rd Fighter Wing, I also worked with the 82nd Airborne and the U.S. Navy to move 50 patients today so they could receive definitive medical treatment. Complicated surgeries could only be performed on the USS Comfort medical ship. We expect another 50 patients tomorrow. I joined to help people, and thanks to support like this, we have the capacity to help to the fullest.
