Why the guard? Are we going to war is there a national threat(other than the media)? Why not UN, WHO or the Red Cross. If my memory serves me well the last time the US military performed humanitarian aid on the African continent it didn't go over so well.
Now that Ebola is officially in the US on an uncontrolled basis, the two questions on everyone's lips are i) who will get sick next and ii) how bad could it get?
We don't know the answer to question #1 just yet, but when it comes to the second one, a press release three weeks ago from Lakeland Industries, a manufacturer and seller of a "comprehensive line of safety garments and accessories for the industrial protective clothing market" may provide some insight into just how bad the US State Department thinks it may get. Because when the US government buys 160,000 hazmat suits specifically designed against Ebola, just ahead of the worst Ebola epidemic in history making US landfall, one wonders: what do they know the we don't?

I can confirm that naval COBs (Captain of the boat) of nuclear submarines (and probably higher-ups in many other areas of the navy and military more generally) are having to choose individual marines to send to West Africa. It must be pretty hard on COBs each having to choose someone to send into that nightmare.
They are gathering troops in this way in order to avoid sending a bunch of people from the same town. That's to avoid the chances of some small American suburb or rural county enduring the tragedy of major losses.
