The U.S. Military’s Role in Disaster Relief Saturday, July 16, 2016
When natural disaster is on the news such as the tsunamis in Japan and Indonesia, the devastating earth quake in Haiti or the Hurricanes that have hit the U.S. coast, the military’s humanitarian assistance has relief there to help either within a few hours or in days of the disaster. They come by ship, plane or helicopter. They arrive ready to help, whether it is to help clean up, bring supplies to remote areas, or assist the sick and injured. They come prepared for any situation.
