Katrina

Our troops were sent to New Orleans for nothing
My husband was sent to New Orleans through the National Gaurd, I have recently spoke with him only to find out that there is nothing being done to help the New Orleans community. He informed me that himself along with 1800 of our troops have been residing in a wharehouse that is 100+ degrees and they have not yet helped one person. They have no idea what their reason is for being there. Why have our troops been sent there to do nothing? Why are they unable to get information on what they are waiting for? I am only one person, but I am asking for the help of others to either get our troops home or get them into action. Anonymous
