While Hurricane Michael created catastrophic devastation to most of Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, the relief efforts were an instant reminder of the symbiotic relationship between military branches.
In the days following the storm, the Air Force came in droves to provide support with the Navy and Army not far behind. Engineers from the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 133, Gulfport, Mississippi, and the 46th Engineer Battalion, Ft. Polk, Louisiana, hit the ground running.
They traveled in convoys bringing with them construction vehicles and equipment. Unable to bring everything they would need, they also planned to have contracted vehicles meet them at Tyndall.
