Super Typhoon Yutu Relief Efforts
Saipan Mayor David Apatang, a retired U.S. Army Soldier now living on Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, expresses his appreciation toward Soldiers with the 9th Mission Support Command, U.S. Army Reserve, currently assigned to Joint Task Group-Saipan, Task Force-West, for the work they did in support of Super Typhoon Yutu recovery efforts, Nov. 29, 2018. After Super Typhoon Yutu hit the islands of Saipan and Tinian Oct. 24, several federal agencies immediately began a coordinated disaster response effort, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Defense and local government, to help the people of these islands recover. DOD forces used in the initial typhoon response have begun redeploying at the direction of FEMA, based on the needs of the local government.
