Marines offering assistance
Marines from the 24th MEU are providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief in the Philippines following the mudslide that took more then a thousand lives. One of my fellow corpsmen Sandy deployed out with that group, he’s likely trudging through the mud and with a couple hundred Marines, helping where he can. Getty Images has a huge set of pictures (notice many of them are of Marines helping out, look closely and you might find Sandy), it’s hard to believe a week ago a thousand lives were lost and hardly in the news this week. There's more going on in the world then Iraq.
