Go Navy -- Haiti
I got distracted this morning when I found the Navy’s photo log of Operation Unified Response -- the rescue efforts in Haiti. These picture are but a tiny sample of what is available. The captions make the photos even more enlightening. My captions are just to whet your appetite and -- hopefully -- to get you to think about the scale of this operation.

There are many, many more.
