I want to add my voice to thanking you for continuing. This is a rare window into what is happening. I'm particularly interested in the US Navy and
what they are doing. It appears they are ready to evacuate non-essential personnel. They are also moving Carrier Air Wing Five, which belongs with the
CVN George Washington. Captain of the base said they were going north to assist, though F/A-18s don't work too well for humanitarian assistance. I
heard another report the Hornets were being sent to Guam and elsewhere while the other airplanes, including small cargo planes such as the C-2
Greyhounds, were the ones pressed into service. We have several amphibious ships in the area that are reportedly carrying Japanese military, and the
USS Ronald Reagan Strike Group is entering the area.
At first glance this may seem inappropriate, but the Reagan has two full-service hospitals on board and can generate electrical power for a small
city. They also have numerous helos that can be used in various missions. Apparently some of the helos took on some radiation and 17 sailors had to be
decontaminated. All in all we could have at least 30 ships in the area very quickly, insofar as they are useful.
If you happen to come across any info on these guys I wpuld appreciate knowing. Thanks and good luck. I think I'm going to go find a geiger counter,
But what could you do? Yup! This here thing is ticking. Too late! Oh, pooh!
