    Our house was flooded many years ago and I remember trucks distributing cans of Anheuser Busch drinking water. White cans with black letters. Pretty plain looking but VERY welcomed!

    If they are coordinating with the Red Cross, it will be sold to the storm victims.

    we had a tornado a few years back that litterly wiped a town off the map. Absalutly nothing left standing. but one or two trees.
    my friends dad owend a trucking Co. that hauld milk.
    He took two tankers, filled them with drinking water. and headed out.It took 3hrs. to get there.
    And after spending the day fighting with the red cross and NG.
    They would not let him in to help.
    So he set the trucks up just out side there parimater. and went to work handing out fresh water to the victums.

    Would you balive they called the state police to try and have him arested for being disordaly.
    The troopers said hell no.
    he did it for 4 days, untill they brought in there own water trucks.

    My dad always hated the red cross. Not sure why. He was in China Burma And India during the war. He told me never to donate to them...

    I've heard some WWII stories about the Red Cross, some petty things, some not.

    I've always been a bit suspicious of groups that handle large sums of money, you just wonder where it all really goes.

    The pres & CEO of the red cross makes about $650,000 per year plus expenses.
