Mt Saint Helens Eruption

My wife and 2 daughters & I lived in North Portland when it went. It was unbelievable. The ash poured from the explosion for days. We were a substantial distance from it but our yard was covered with over an inch of ash. It was a mess. If you tried to sweep it, it flew away, if you wet it, it became sludge. It clogged filters and messed up machinery & autos. It did make a pretty nice fertilizer within a couple of years afterwards. It was an amazing event for those of us who lived nearby.

Mount St Helens Eruption Recovery

I was in the Unit 54th Medical Detachment from Ft Lewis, Wa. (Helicopter Ambulance). I was part of the aircrew that recovered the first five victums and brought them home. We searched cars and logging locations for survivors and victums. There was a lot of devestation in the area, and it would take a book to explain what I saw and did. I have written a book about it but havnt published it, or even let tomany people read it. The memories are still with me. This year is the 30th aniversary of the eruption, I would just like to recognize the 54th Medical Detachment for their bravery.. I would also like to thank the local community for the support they provided for us, friendship, food, clothing and someone to talk to. Good Job to all that participated in the rescue efforts, you care and concern is appreciated and you are not forgoten.

Just another reminder that "We are all passengers on Mother Earth, and her fate is our destiny". It brings to light the incredible power that lurks beneath our feet.
