More Camp Lejeune Marines Heading To Haiti

More Marines from Camp Lejeune are headed to help out the relief efforts in Haiti.

The Pentagon says the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, which was already scheduled to deploy overseas, is being diverted to Haiti. The MEU left Camp Lejeune Wednesday morning.

The 24th MEU is part of an additional 4,000 additional troops being sent to the disaster-ridden country. The 22nd MEU arrived in Haiti on Tuesday, after leaving North Carolina on Friday from Morehead City.

    They need to fly an extra cargo plane with all these Pat Robertson bashers on board so they can see first hand how many millions of dollars and how many relief workers/missionaries Pat sent down to Haiti. He's done that many times over the last 30 yrs or more in other 3rd world countries around the world and has gone himself many times as well. Pat and crew at CBN have a 747 jet liner rigged up like a make shift hospital with all the latest medical equipment with Christian doctors on call who volunteer their time by helping those in need. These scoffers don't know you Pat but God's children does.
