Mississippi Has Been Invaded
Everywhere you go, they are there. Directing traffic, handing out supplies, bulldozing debris out of the way, helping restore water and sewage utilities, rebuilding schools, and doing everything possible to help us on the Mississippi Gulf Coast recover and rebuild. The are the men and women who serve in the Navy, Army, the National Guard, the Air National Guard, the Mexican Army, and the Dutch Navy.
I didn't realize how many were in Gulfport until I took Jeremy and I to get tetanus shots. As I passed the Gulfport-Biloxi Airport and the airfields of the Air National Guard, there are rows and rows of tents that house these wonderful men and women.
Thank you so much for your help!!
Mark at Knocking On The Golden Door and who is my official proofreader has noted that I have left off one branch: The Coast Guard. How could I have forgotten that wonderful and courageous group who along with the Navy ran rescue operations almost none stop the first ten days after Hurricane Katrina. Those helicopters used to pass over my house 40 times a day.
