LA National Guard Needs Equipment Back From Iraq

by RonChusid

We’re seeing another downside to having the National Guard off in Iraq as Louisiana and other states are hit by Katrina:

When members of the Louisiana National Guard left for Iraq in October, they took a lot equipment with them. Dozens of high water vehicles, humvees, refuelers and generators are now abroad, and in the event of a major natural disaster that, could be a problem.

“The National Guard needs that equipment back home to support the homeland security mission,” said Lt. Colonel Pete Schneider with the LA National Guard.
