    What's your name if you don't mind me asking? My name is Jack Rhem, and I also was part of TF 83 and spent a good month or so working with Lily at Mardi Gras World with the California and Colorado National Guard. I mostly worked "the line" and back in the supply tent restocking items. Anyway, take care.


    My name is Jim O'Neill but everyone called me "Chief". I was an Area Commander in TF-83 and the people in my area were, I believe, the first ones assigned to Lily at MGW. The "line" consisted of my son, Jimbo, John Denemy, Rick Van Horn, Shawn Costine, Nate Corrigan, Billy ZZSmith and Robert Simineo. Out back in the "tent" were Mary Bellew, Her husband Neal (Cliff), Tim Quaid, Randy and Alan. We ended up being joined by Tony Brooks, Terry Gammel, Jerry Gonzales, Kevin Sullivan and a host of others. Just before I went to housing they did away with the area commanders and Jeremy became the Division Commander.

    Thanks for the reply. If you want to reach me personally you can do so at [email protected] and, don't forget to join our e-mai group on YahhoGroups.com. Just look for TaskForceNOLA. Stay safe out there Brother.

            I would suggest that if you worked with TF-83 that you join the TF-NOLA web group at www.yahoogroups.com and post you question. the URL to the group is http://groups.yahoo.com/group/taskforcenola. We had a ****-load of Mike's. Where did he work? Did he work Mardi Gras World? How long was he deployed to Katrina? A little more info would help. Stay safe Brother.

                  Wow! It has been a long time TF83!! What a experience. I remember walking the empty streets for hours checking and marking damaged buildings. It was really great to meet so many different people and trying our best to help out,which was frustrating at best sometimes. I f anyone see this from TF83 it would be good to hear from you.
                  My name is Brad Wilson from NC. We stayed above the coffee shop across from the county building near the canal.
