Military Help for Tsunami Wrecked Shores

It's perhaps the biggest relief operation the US military has conducted since the Berlin Airlift. The Pentagon is mobilizing forces to provide help to countries battered by the Christmas Day tsunami. At least 20 aircraft are already flying supplies and looking for survivors. The aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and helicopter carrier USS Bonhomme Richard and their support ships are on their way. That's 37 helicopters and 12,500 people steaming to the rescue.
