The 102nd Military History Detachment from the Kansas Army National Guard was dispatched to Louisiana for seven weeks during the massive recovery efforts following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita to document the work done by the Army National Guard. Units from across the country joined Joint Task Force Pelican, the Louisiana National Guard's response force to the hurricanes. Included in this collection are the following: oral history interviews with National Guardsmen; Daily Battle Update Briefings; thousands of photographs taken by troops from various National Guard units; official documents from Joint Task Force Pelican; and an electronic journal written by LTC Larry Hannan.
