Thank you for that. I was hoping someone would get a handle on what's needed here. These are just american citizens who have just been through a tremendous ordeal.BlueLion said:First of all lets realize that we are all Americans and that we should be willing to take care of our own. Secondly, yes some communities can expect to be affected by the influx of people from different parts of the country. However, most of these people have nothing and displaced, most are sick and hungry and believe it or not most will miss home and have the desire to return to NOLA. I would not change my vigilance or awareness just because we have fellow Americans coming to your cities (I dare not call them refugees).
However do beaware of those who did not come from NOLA and may seek to get over on you with crocodile tears. Moreover, it is during these times when the wolves do come out and seek to influence and take advantage of the helpless. So, lets be vigilant and aware and willing to help, but at the same time lets not be afraid to defend if needed.
It is times like these that I miss my old unit and wish I was able to be down there helping out. Cleaning out the bad guys that are roaming NOLA taking shots at my brothers in arms. Anyway lets show the world why America is the Best in the World.
A lot of people are giving the idea that NOLA is just a hotbed of crime because of the horrible things some thugs did to take advantage of the situation. This could be any major city in the US. All of our cities have seen riots and violence in the streets for one thing or another.
When calamity, of any kind, hits a major city riots and burning and looting take place.
Just thought I'd remind everyone
And CombatEffective, thank you for that warm letter from the front lines.
