Michigan is sending National Guard troops to help restore order in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The Posse has learned that one of our friends (and frequent commenters) has been called up and will be heading to parts south early tomorrow.
Our prayers go with him and all of the troops trying to bring order out of the chaos down there. He has promised to provide us with on-the-spot reporting whenever feasible.
If nothing else, we look forward to compiling his account when he returns.
Mudville Gazette has compiled a more extensive list of military involvment in disaster assistance. As Mark Steyn noted months ago: When lives are on the line, the US military is ready to answer the call.
