The Globe and Mail: Forces personnel returning from Katrina-stricken coast

Most of the Canadian military personnel sent to help out in the wake of hurricane Katrina are on their way back from the Gulf Coast, officials with the Canadian Forces said Tuesday.

”Ships started sailing home Monday,” Brigadier-General Mike Ward, chief of staff for Canadian Forces operation, said during a press conference in Ottawa on Tuesday. The personnel are members of Operation UNISON 2005.

A dive team and the Coast Guard ship Sir William Alexander are still in the regions devastated by Katrina, including Louisiana, Alabama and Mississippi.
