    If anyone is interested, PM me and I can get you the info.
    I know some of you came down to help, or you may want to have something to commemorate the largest natural disaster in the known history of the US.

    I know some of you think buying coins is :greddy: , but the money goes to Keesler's families that were victims of Katrina.

    Email below:
    ****************************************
    The wing has produced a coin/patch commemorating Hurricane Katrina and raising money for members of Keesler’s families affected/effected by the storm.
    I know several of us have already received money from the Katrina fund. Now it is our turn to put in a few dollars of our own.
    Any one wanting a coin please come to my office and I will be more than happy to help.
    The coin is $7 and the patch is $5. If you would like to write a check, make it out to: 81 TRSS Booster club or you can just pay cash.
    I will be visiting the sections but thought you might want to know because they are going fast.
    Remember, if we all help our burden is light. It’s when a few have to carry the many that the task becomes difficult and sometimes to much to handle.

    7 level students took the middle hall upstairs, triangle kids took the side halls, and the instructors and their families were downstairs. 400+ people in Jones Hall with non-potable water for most of the time made for a miserable experience.

    They called 7 level students that had traveled home for the weekend back to shelter. I am talking about guys that were in Texas and the top part of Mississippi. I was going to drive to Alabama but was told I had to stay on base.

    Gotta love training bases! They are more worried about you being accounted for than your own safety.
