Seabees touched by Katrina help Pakistanis

Navy unit overcomes personal losses to provide quake relief

A convoy was greeted by waving crowds as it wound through the narrow, bustling streets of devastated Muzaffarabad, Pakistan. The earthquake-ravaged city is slowly taking on a semblance of normality, with people peddling food, spices, shoes and watches amid the ruins.

Members of the Navy's Civil Engineer Corps, based in Gulfport, MS, lost nearly everything in Hurricane Katrina. But that didn't stop them from making their way to Pakistan to provide some much needed help. More from The Associated Press via ABC News.

This is inspiring. Much more than the call of duty.
