I'm doing Army stuff so I haven't been blogging much lately. I'd like to encourage all my readers to dig deep into their pockets for hurricane relief donations. The president is right it will take years to recover from this. Houston is still recovering from Tropical Storm Allison.
The volunteer community is a large part of this recovery effort. During TS Allison, the volunteer community prepared and distributed over a million meals to folks impacted by the disaster. Anyone who has ever worked in logistics knows that this is no small task.
So dig deep and donate to organizations like the Red Cross and Salvation Army. And I'd also encourage you to get involved with your local Red Cross or Salvation Army chapters. Volunteers from all over the country are now converging on the SE US. There is always a demand for trained volunteers to go to the hard work in disaster areas. All us rough and tough military types make good candidates.
