From Our Partners: Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society - There When You Need Us


For a retired couple staying at the Eagle Hammock RV Park at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Georgia, July 7 started out like any other day. That evening, as Hurricane Elsa roared along the east coast, the sky darkened and the base tornado alarm rang.  As the couple explained to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society staff, “there was no time to take cover.” Their RV was picked up in the air and dropped, it bounced up and down like a basketball. When the noise passed and the RV settled, the husband stepped outside to find his neighbor’s RV had been destroyed and the one behind his site was gone. He found his neighbor covered in blood and trapped under debris, his first thought was he was dead. Thankfully he was not, and he was pulled to safety. Over the sound of sirens and shouting he could hear moaning from inside the destroyed RV and went to assist his neighbor’s wife. Moments later, a second tornado alarm went off.

NMCRS trains to be there when life-altering disasters happen. The NMCRS Kings Bay staff was readily available, providing much needed financial assistance to 34 active duty and retired families impacted by the tornado.
