You know, over recent weeks, I’ve noticed something odd. You can find lots of information on how to volunteer to help out in Tohoku, how to donate to help, etc. I have friends who have been up to the tsunami/quake-affected areas to work on the clean-up. There are thousands of people who are still living in shelters with no home to return to. [No, I have not been up there myself. There are many important ways to help people affected by 3-11.]
My questions is, where is the SDF? I mean, I know they were there in the days after 3-11, helping to deliver much-needed supplies and to help to look for the missing. In all the news sources I have been watching, why is it I cannot seem to find any articles about their efforts now? Or have they been told to pack up and go home?
If anyone happens to know, pls leave me a comment. I keep thinking that our taxes are paying to have them available in just such an emergency – and the emergency isn’t over yet. I still want to pay my taxes AND have them help the folks up in Tohoku with the cleanup operations.
