    by NavyOne @ Navy Cuts Red Tape in New York City |

    You wanna know why I love the Navy? Read this article about New York City and watch how the Navy cut through the bureaucratic nonsense and got down to work:

    In Belle Harbor, residents got help from the Navy.

    Several vehicles were unloaded onto the beach from a large landing craft, including two amphibious vehicles known as LARCs.

    Chief Gary Evans-Murphy of Beach master Unit 2 said his crew of 29 would be in the neighborhood all day helping to pump water from homes.

    Their initial orders were to pump out four specific housing units, but Evans-Murphy said he would skip bureaucratic red tape and help out however they could.

    “I asked permission to go ahead and just help where we can, without two much coordination, too much paperwork,” he said.

    Relieved residents hailed the Navy’s arrival.

    “This is the first sign (of help) and it’s a week later,” said Beach 126th St. resident Jeanne Duffy, a nurse recruiter. “Oh, my God, I’m so happy the Navy’s here. It’s been total devastation.”

    Some members of the Navy unit grabbed shovels and started digging out the wall of sand that landed in front of homes, like retired Con Ed worker Marty Lattanzi’s house on Beach 127th St.

    “If I talk any longer, you’re going to see tears,” Lattanzi said. “I’m just so relieved.”

    Too much water? Who you gonna call?

    Why are you cheering for them? The Navy works for the UN, Obama AND Panetta said so.

    NY is handling the flooding just fine by themselves:

    I love the Navy (my husband is a Navy commander).

    Who do you think called the Navy? Do you think it might have been the Commander in Chief?

    Sure it is. Just fine. :cool:

    If you'd bother to halt your vitriolic, anti-military rant and read the link, you would learn the sailors were ordered to help on four house, but did everything else on their own - with their captain's approval of course.

    And, to get a REAL picture, the link also provides a whole lot of links as to what is really going on - not just what the Lame Street Media is feeding their viewers.
