For the past few days I have been posting news stories and accounts of armed forces providing disaster relief in Haiti. However, the original format I chose (organized by country) has become unwieldy. Instead, on this page I will be post links to stories about military disaster relief in Haiti listed chronologically. This format will be easier for me, and for readers.
Please consider donating to the civilian relief effort, here is a good list of NGOs working there.
