request to help distribute humani-
tarian aid supplies and search for survivors in Japan after the massive

hardest hit areas along the northeastern coast of the country. Others have taken part in airborne search and
rescue missions, on the lookout for potential survivors. Civilian search and rescue teams from the states of Virginia
and California, also took part. The overall management of the mission is
being conducted by U.S. government
