From Katrina to Rita

ELLINGTON FIELD, Texas -- After 19 days of supporting the Hurricane Katrina relief effort in New Orleans, Airmen from the 147th Fighter Wing return home Sept. 19 to prepare for Hurricane Rita. Approximately 100 Air National Guardsmen from the 147th conducted security patrols and assisted in door-to-door recovery operations while in New Orleans. If Hurricane Rita makes a damaging landfall, a base spokesman said the Airmen will stand poised to render help in the Houston area. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Dale Hanson)
