Bush Orders More Troops to US Gulf Coast

  • VOA News

President Bush is sending additional active duty troops to the hurricane-ravaged U.S. Gulf Coast to help in emergency efforts. In his radio address, delivered live on Saturday from the White House, Mr. Bush said seven-thousand active duty troops will go to the region, adding to the four-thousand active duty military forces already there. Additionally, the Pentagon says 10-thousand National Guard reservist troops will join the 30-thousand National Guard troops already in the devastated region. President Bush said the situation on the ground is improving, but an enormous task lies ahead, considering the entire disaster area is as large as Great Britain. He said it is unacceptable that many victims, especially in New Orleans, are not getting the aid they need.
