I never had a doubt that once boots started hitting the ground things would turn around.

I hope they are treated well and can enjoy helping those here at home rather than abroad.

I think the battle tested troops put the fear of god in the voodoo natives.

THANKS to ALL those who serve

Put some rails through the city with some twist and turns and make it scary roller coaster ride...

and to think people thought the savage soldiers would go through and rape and pillage all of the poor new orleanians.

Was there really that much of a doubt that when the army finally got a hand into it and wasn't thrown around like a bunch of idiots by the standing police force that order could be brought back to the anarchy that was spreading.

I wish I was allowed to take part in the clean up but I guess school holdovers take importance over what needs to be done.

lets get a hooah for airborne holdover. 5 weeks in so far maybe they can put us to work on something more important than mowing lawns next week

Yeah, I know, I always stick up for the AF.
OUTDAMNSTANDING work by all personnel involved, all branches.

The sad part is, Congress will continue to close military medical units, Like Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
The "peacetime" capabilities of military medicine and evac units in times like these is SO worth the budget expenditures!

Well said and well done. I guess it is not surprising that people trained to lead are better organized than people elected to lead. Sometimes.
