SAIPAN, Northern Mariana Islands - Saipan Mayor David Apatang thanks 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 to support Super Typhoon Yutu recover efforts, Nov. 29, 2018. After Super Typhoon Yutu hit the islands of Saipan and Tinian, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, 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.
