The New York Post reports that the Marines have landed in Staten Island and Queens to assist in cleanup efforts there. And the residents seem appreciative;
“I was just speechless when I saw them,” said Priscilla Smalls, 53, who lives in the Ocean Bay Houses in the Rockaways’ Arverne section.
“I’ve never seen Marines anywhere before, let alone over here in the projects. It’s a great, cool thing. We need the big guns after what happened here. I’ve seen the National Guard, but the Marines are a whole different thing.”
They don’t seem to be worried if the Marines are armed or not, like the old lady who calls himself mayor of New York City.
