Message From The CNO

[Intel Source: Citizen Smash] If you haven't seen it already, check out this P4 message from the CNO about his impressions of the damage caused by Hurricane Katrina, and the Navy's response.

The whole message can be found here. It concludes:

"At NAS New Orleans I came across a bunch of Seabees working feverishly on the wooden platform for what was going to be a temporary dining facility. It was a contract job, but the contractor was having problems rounding up the necessary manpower and resources. The Seabees didn't ask permission, didn't wait for orders. They simply rolled up their sleeves and went to work.
"Hey, they needed help," one said. "And we know how to do this stuff."
"We do, indeed, know how to do this stuff, and we are doing it exceptionally well. Standing amongst them, I was never more proud to call myself an American Sailor."

To see more about what the Navy is doing, check out the Navy's Hurricane Relief Effort page.

It good to see people just get in and help instead of thinking of reasons not too.
