Heh, and here I said we weren't going to be...

...all Katrina, alla time.

Since the services are taking hits for not being there fast enough with enough (leave aside who has responsibility for what) I've been harvesting pics of military participation in the relief effort - this batch harvested from the service websites. I know - the uncharitable will say all these photos are just a Potemkin village. If that's how you feel, go be angry somewhere else, okay?

I'm just opening a little window, in a very little corner of the Internet.

(Sept. 4, 2005) – Hurricane Katrina survivors are stacked five-high as they are medically evacuated from New Orleans to Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla., aboard a U.S. Air Force Reserve Command C-130 Hercules aircraft configured for medical evacuation flights. The Navy's involvement in the Hurricane Katrina humanitarian assistance operations is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Department of Defense.

If you've got pics of your own, or have public domain pics you'd like to share, send 'em along and I'll add 'em to the album.

I'll try to keep up on captioning, but no promises there. I do have a life outside of this space, odd as that may seem!

Even though I've taken to watermarking pics (just to track who's stealing what, and how they're using 'em) these are public domain pics, freely distributable. If you'd like one that is watermark-free, just ask.
