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.

He represents the district where the helicopters are made. The funding issue likely will boil over next week when House and Senate lawmakers meet to resolve differences over their respective defense spending bills.
