Thanks for your help

I come from the Philippines, and I would like to thank you for helping in the rescue efforts. Here's the update:

US military begins aid to Leyte landslide victims

CLARK SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONE --The United States military's joint task force overseeing the Balikatan 2006 exercises is sending a survey team to the landslide site in St. Bernard town, Southern Leyte province on Saturday to assess what humanitarian assistance the residents require.

"We don't want to give help that they don't need," Captain Burrell Parmer, Balikatan public information officer told the Inquirer to explain the aim of the survey.

The task force's team of engineers and medical personnel will take off from this former US military base on board a KC-130 cargo plane, Parmer said.

He did not say how many members were in the team but said it was staffed with "adequate people with the right skills" from the US Army, Marine, Air Force, and Navy.

The incident in Southern Leyte is not expected to affect the schedule of Balikatan 2006, which starts on February 20 in the provinces of Sulu Cebu and in the region of Luzon
The wise learn many things from their foes.

You're welcome. That's one of the things that Americans do well, and it's nice to hear from someone who appreciates it.

That landslide is one of the worse small-scale disasters I have ever heard of. I regularly pass through towns of similar size in the rural area near my home, and now I think about one of these little towns being nearly wiped-off the face of the earth by something like that, and it humbles and scares me. I hope that your country and the people of that area can somehow recover and start over.
