American Relief Efforts

Here are some details on the relief efforts of the American military.

So far, U.S. military personnel have delivered 430,000 pounds of supplies to the region.

Military officials discounted criticism of a slow U.S. start to relief efforts, saying they started moving help to the region as soon as they were called on to act.

Fourteen cargo planes were taking food, supplies and equipment to supply hubs in Thailand, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, according to the U.S. military’s Pacific Command Web site, www.pacom.mil.
