Public Domain Haiti Relief Images from the US Navy

Posted by havealittletalk on January 28, 2010

The US Navy’s Eye on the Fleet  library of public domain images continues to be updated with pictures of the relief efforts in Haiti. There are few new images of search and rescue efforts in Port-au-Prince, but more of medical evacuations and evaluations have been added.

In the past few days images of relief to rural areas of Haiti have been posted, and these show the means of getting supplies to coastal areas without harbors. A lot of pictures show the sheer volume of materials that have to be moved, somehow, from place to place. Since these are photos by  US Navy photographers, of course these are primarily of US efforts. But there are a few, like the one at the end of today’s post, that shows joint US and Mexican efforts.
