Hey guys, As most of you are aware I'm leaving on Friday for a quick trip to Haiti on a deployment in support of DOD. I'm only going to be there for a week but from my briefings it's not going to be pleasant even for such a short time. Well, I started to do some research into Haiti as I really did not know much about it except it was a major corridor for drug smuggling. Come to find out that Haiti is not only an island but its part of a two country island. Did you know that the Dominican Republic was the other half of Haiti? I didn’t. My question is if Haiti was so devastated by the earthquake wouldn’t the Dominican Republic be hit just as hard? How come we haven’t heard anything about any damage or death in the Dominican Republic? The island is just over 75,800 sq km and not much bigger than half the size of Cuba. Anyone have any idea about this?
