A Joint Effort
Photo, caption below. President George W. Bush deplanes Marine One on Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., on Sept. 2, 2005. Bush visited the Biloxi area to examine the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, which battered the Gulf Coast with wind gusts in excess of 140 miles per hour, flattening buildings and flooding areas from Florida to Louisiana. Millions of people were left without power and hundreds of thousands homeless. The humanitarian assistance operations are a joint effort by the Defense Department in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Mike Buytas
