Camp Grayling Could Be Called On To Help Haiti

Camp Grayling is standing by waiting to hear what assistance they may be able to provide to aid disaster relief efforts in Haiti. The Army and Air National Guard training camp is a hub for wartime training and supplies. Camp Grayling is one of only four operations like it in the United States. It's often called on for help in disasters, and last helped with relief efforts for hurricane Katrina. The camp isn't housing troops this winter, but could be called on for tents, cots, and M.R.E.s, or meals ready to eat. The first National Guard team expected to be called to Haiti would be from Puerto Rico. Erika Waddell and photojournalist Justin DePrekel have the story.
