Rescue in the Philippines

The US Navy has sent one of its vessels to help in rescue efforts in the Philippines following a landslide:
The US military is diverting a naval vessel taking part in war games in the Philippines to help the victims of a landslide that buried an entire village, the US embassy said.

Embassy spokesman Matt Lussenhop said they were also studying requests by the Philippine Red Cross for the US military to send heavy-lift helicopters to help in the rescue and relief efforts.
It's a very commendable effort that shows the US military's dedication to providing humanitarian aid for countries in emergency situations, and the military deserves many congratulations and thanks for their efforts.

Hat tip: Camp Katrina.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
