Letter: Remember our GIs in Philippines

Military missions include providing aid and succor in situations of extremis, such as is unfolding in the Philippines, where thousands have perished after the recent super typhoon and many more are at risk. Our Marines, airmen, sailors and soldiers of the Pacific Command are working to bring aid and assistance to the people now suffering.

 Please remember our currently serving members as they go into these very tough conditions, and please take the time to donate to one of the many worthy organizations to help NGOs buy the resources needed to support this relief effort.
