September 1, 2005, Aviation Ordnancemen from the Amphibious Assault Ship USS Bataan (LHD-5) work along side National Guardsmen from the Biloxi, MS area at the Gulf Port International Airport, now one of the main staging areas for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in Mississippi, to load a UH-60 Blackhawk with water and ice to be delivered to victims of the hurricane. USS Bataan's involvement in the humanitarian assistance operations is an effort led by the Department of Defense in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Bataan has been tasked to be the Maritime Disaster Relief Coordinator for the Navy’s role in the relief efforts. (US NAVY Photo by PH1 Ken J. Riley)(RELEASED)
