More Marines Headed to Haiti

The Pentagon is ordering another 2,000 Marines to Haiti, diverting troops that were on their way to the Persian Gulf and Africa region. Navy officials say three ships that left Virginia Monday for their regular deployment have been told to go Haiti instead for the earthquake relief effort. The first group of some 2,000 Marines already off Haiti's shore went on land for the first time Tuesday to help deliver aid. A Pentagon official says there are some 11,500 U.S. military personal in Haiti or offshore and 16,000 are expected by week's end.

Help is on the Way

President Barack Obama told Haitians "they will not be forsaken". The United States was sending 3,500 soldiers and 300 medical personnel have been sent there to help with disaster relief and security in the wake of an earthquake that knocked the Caribbean nation to its knees. The Pentagon was also sending an aircraft carrier and three amphibious ships, and Marines. The challenge there will be long-term. Parliament, the national palace, and many government buildings collapsed and it was and many lawmakers and officials are feared dead.
