    I just found out this evening that my mother was activated this morning. I'm not sure where she is, or what exactly she is doing yet. My mother is a food and medical inspector in the navy, but she has an extensive background in the medical field (hoping she is saving some lives.) I really don't even know much about what's going on with the Hurricane area, but I hope she is doing okay.

    I hope everyone that has been deployed over there are safe, and the locals are getting the help they need!

    My buddy's unit in USMC over at the Air Wing is getting activated. Individual's are getting put on standby to go. Mostly H/E operators.

    I read an article about a reserve USMC AAV unit from Louisiana going out and rescuing 100+ people in AAV's :cool:.

    I saw part of an announcement that some politician lady was saying on CNN. She was saying something about a unit that came back from Iraq and will be sent into the New Orleans area. She actually said "These guys have proven that they can shoot to kill, and they will not hesitate to do so if fired upon!"

    I was like "OH FUCK YES - FINALLY A POLITICIAN GOT IT RIGHT!!" :bigthumb:

    I dont want them to get killed but if you fucking see people giving out MREs(aka food) and water to you trying the best they can with the resources THEY have available dont be so fucking stupid as to go and SHOOT at them. It's not like the guardsmen from LA(or anywhere else for that matter) WANT to see them in this condition, they can only pass out what they are given. The looting for food and clothes is justifiable but the motherfuckers taking out fuckin TVs and PS2s and shit deserve watever they get. I mean wtf are you gonna do with a TV when there wont be any useable power for a couple of MONTHS!?!?!? Either way back on topic Godspeed to the folks that get deployed there.
