From the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) blog:

Rich Serino, FEMA deputy administrator, on the heroes of relief efforts in tornado-stricken Joplin, Mo.:

“…Response and recovery in Joplin has truly been a “whole community” effort. Lives have been saved, and there are so many great examples of what individuals, business owners, volunteer organizations, and government can do when they work together as a team, even under the toughest circumstances.”

“As we say thank you to everyone on the ground in Joplin, this Memorial Day weekend, we honor those in uniform who made the ultimate sacrifice and say thank you to their families for their service.
