MFE Marines steady shaken Turkish earthquake victims

Sgt. Paul Evans, Marine Forces Europe Embarkation chief, measures the length of disaster relief gear at the Vaernes International Airport in Norway, Nov. 14. With assistance from Norwegian soldiers with the Marine Corps Prepositioning Program in Norway, the pallets would later be filled with 110 cold weather tents, space heaters and fuel cans to be flown to Erzurum, Turkey, via C-130, to help provide shelter and warmth to more than 1,000 Turkish citizens left homeless by recent earthquakes. “It is crucial that all the gear is loaded properly, and done so the first time,” said Evans, who resides from Bakersfield, Calif. “We don't want to overload the aircraft, or load it unbalanced, otherwise it will either leave late, or even worse, gear would have to be left behind.”
