I heard a radio show last night , the Host was giving a step by step run down on the National Guard deployment during Katrina. Its funny I never heard much about it on the news ... Mostly just bitching how everything went wrong.
Its pretty incredible when you get into the details of what a massive deployment it became and was actually begun days before the storm hit. I did not know that the force level actually grew to 50K with 10 days of the storm hitting.
Over 150 helos were operating with 3 days , a quote from one of the pilots was " our biggest fear was runnning into each other".
Well I for one want one to remember these people , The People of NO should be putting a monument up pronto.
