Today, I was informed that our customers here at Naval Communication Center (NAS) Jacksonville will be deploying their service members to Guatanamo Bay to provide relief and support for Haiti. If you know anybody who is scheduled to deploy to Haiti, please, send them your deepest support. Words can’t express how proud I feel for our country---particularly the shipmates I see here on a daily basis.
While watching a few videos on CNN today regarding the hungry children crowded in the streets in Cite Soliel, a division located in Por-au-Prince, it reminded me of the desperate hungry children I encountered when I visited the Philippines back in 2004. It’s extremely hard to fathom. Believe me, it will truly make you appreciate where you are right now today. I am blessed that God gave me the opportunity to look at outside of the box, because since then, I find it hard to complain about anything these days anymore.
