New Orleans (Sept. 10, 2005) -- A U.S. Navy MH-60S Seahawk helicopter carrying Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. Mike Mullen pulls away from the flight deck of the dock landing ship USS Tortuga (LSD 46) as it is moored along the banks of the Mississippi River. The CNO and Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON) Terry Scott are traveling the gulf coast to get a personal assessment of damages caused by the hurricane and to thank the Sailors on ships and at naval facilities in Louisiana and Mississippi. The Navy's involvement in the humanitarian assistance operations is being led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Department of Defense.
