U.S. Military Expected to Have Nearly 10,000 Personnel in Haiti by Monday - Video 1/14/10


Here is a video report on the plan for close to 10,000 U.S. Military Personnel to be on the ground in Haiti, or on ships just offshore by Monday. The speed with which everything can be put in place is being hampered there by the fact that the Port-Au-Prince Airport has only one usable runway, and there are so many planes needing to use it.

An entire brigade of 3,500 from the 82nd Airborne is expected to be on the ground by this weekend to provide security in the devastated area. The Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Carl Vinson should arrive on Friday, and it will have 19 helicopters that can be used to ferry supplies from ships to shore.
