Dept. of Defense Actions in Response to Hurricane Sandy Victims

It's a pretty impressive list.

DLA and other agencies are huge, when they move they can make an impact. And this in addition to other non-governmental agencies, charities, and the sheer goodwill of people trying to help.

Some highlights:

-- New York National Guard distributed meals-ready-to-eat to residents at a staging area in lower Manhattan.

-- More than 500 New York National Guard members are supporting crews to repair an electrical grid in Westchester and Rockland counties.

-- New York National Guard members are currently involved in equipment staging, debris clearance, communications support, transportation, security and traffic control operations, aerial survey and reconnaissance, evacuations, and points of distribution.

-- An aerial port of debarkation for critical power repair assets has been established at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh, N.Y.

-- The New Jersey National Guard has rescued more than 3,000 people and 200 pets by searching door to door in flooded areas.

-- The New Jersey National Guard has assisted civil authorities with establishing shelters in Vineland, Freehold, West Orange, Glen Gardner and at the Jersey City armory.

-- The New Jersey National Guard has established three fuel distribution points throughout the state and is providing mobile fuel support for first responders and vehicles supporting critical infrastructure.

-- The New Jersey National Guard’s 21st Civil Support Team has deployed to Brick Township to help local law enforcement enhance their communications system.

-- The West Virginia National Guard is rescuing elderly and sick citizens who are without power in remote parts of the state where snow accumulation was more than 18 inches.

-- The West Virginia National Guard is delivering critical supplies across 16 counties.

-- West Virginia National Guard assessment teams continue to identify and assess high risk structures and augment state active duty health and welfare teams.

-- West Virginia National Guard teams conducted roof assessments at ten schools, several private businesses and one senior center.

-- Eight West Virginia National Guard helicopters and crews flew various missions
yesterday to include assessments and welfare checks on people in areas unreachable by vehicle due to snowfall.

-- The West Virginia National Guard has 12 power teams, eight grader teams, six loader dump teams, four chainsaw teams and three search-and-extraction teams working throughout several counties.

In addition to relief efforts from dozens of non-governmental agencies, charities, and the sheer goodwill of Americans.

God bless those who are suffering. And God bless those who are providing aid.
