Some 14,700 pounds of food and about 14,000 pounds of water were delivered on Jan. 5 alone. U.S. military pilots have flown nearly 900 hours to bring relief to tsunami victims. More than 13,000 military personnel are serving in Operation Unified Assistance. These are just a few more ways the United States is helping those devastated by the tsunamis.
