Some of you may remember my dad helped with the aftermath of Katrina however long ago that was now (2??? seems longer) as a volunteer through the VA... he is a medical technician which means he gets to take blood and other fluids from people as well as basic medical stuff...
anyway he volunteered to help again with the new set of storms and I just got an email from mom:
no idea where he's headed or what he'll be doing just yet, have asked mom for more info - will try to keep people posted. Last time he went after the storms had passed... now he's going to be there as it happens, which kinda scares me. But, at the same time, I'm very proud of him!just got the word from kit in anchorage that daddy will probably be deployed late tomorrow or monday...they are calling this the "mother of all storms" in new orleans...they called for mandatory evacuation by 8:00am tomorrow...whew!
