US Air Force Firefighters in Post Earthquake Haiti

US Air Force firefighters deployed to Haiti immediately after the earthquake in 2010 were sent a pallet of supplies from citizens of Naples, Florida.  DHL was kind enough to ship the pallet for free.  Included in the shipment were personal hygiene supplies, medical supplies, bedding and 85 teddy bears.  The airmen gave all bears to the mercy ship to be distributed to the injured children.  Several of the airmen told me, "The children were so excited to receive a bear that they could keep.  They had lost everything so this was their only possession."   The bedding was given to the 23 Haitians our troops were training to be firefighters.  Thank you USAF firefighters for all you do!
