Japan’s Quake came as a surprise or at least it’s severity. In a manner of moments it caused massive destruction with far stretching effects. I do not want to down play the said tragedy, but would like to express an observation. I am totally impressed at how quickly the U.S. military stepped up to help. I am ignoring any political motives, but am delighted to see our military in a helping role verses killing. Very cool! I must say it is a first that I have seen. And I hope to see more in the future.
