Because many of the Soldiers from the Louisana Army National Guard will be returning home in the next few weeks, Soldiers' Angels is mobilizing some efforts to help. It'll take a bit to get ramped up so please stay tuned.
All I can say is that I can't imagine what those troops are going through right now - after a year in a combat zone to come home to this disaster - it will be tough on them.
Update: Here's the link-
Hurricane Katrina has devastated New Orleans and South Louisiana. The homes and lives of an untold number of our friends and families have been decimated. Included in the ranks of victims are the family members of our soldier's serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Many of these soldiers will be returning home in the next few weeks to find that their families have been displaced and their homes and businesses destroyed.
Soldier's Angels has established a relief fund to help our soldiers and their families cope with and recover from this devastation. Your donation will help these families obtain essential personal items, temporary shelter and any other needs that can be met. Soldier's Angels will also work to provide information to the soldiers concerning their families whereabouts and needs. Now is the time to help protect those who have given up so much to protect us.
If you can help, please do so.
