In November 2007 I was sent to Bangaldesh with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit after Cyclone Sidr ravaged a large portion of the coastal area.   The poverty stricken South Asian country lacked the necessary tools to distribute vital aid to it’s people.    After the deaths of nearly 2,000 people, Marines and sailors aboard the 11th MEU provided much needed aerial support for a vital humanitarian relief operation.
