For Our Many Friends in Japan

You can donate to the Japanese Red Cross HERE.  It is far more efficient than donating to the American Red Cross and hoping your donation finds its way to Japan.

I served at NSGD Atsugi (80-83). My son's in-laws live in Iwaki City. My wife and I have many fine memories of the beautiful country of Japan. We wish you well and pray for your people.

My kids' Mom in Sweden,

We are all "borrowers". I am glad you thought enough of it to use it. I borrowed it from the Japanese.

I know your family has a strong connection to friends in Japan. My wife spoke to ours yesterday. Each call ends with tears. Not from fear but from comfort in knowing people care.

All the best.

My daughter is living in Yokohama (husband is a LT with CTF74 in Yokosuka). Check out her blog at for a seven minute video of the earthquake taken in their apartment (and also some updated information). Like LCDR Huber, I also spent some time in Japan, and have driven through Sendai in happier days. The people there are tough and they will recover. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers are for them.
