Two area residents have traveled to Haiti to assist with relief efforts there.
Lee Horstman, South Dakota Air National Guard chief master sergeant from Parkston, traveled to the devastated country two weeks after the Jan. 12 earthquake hit. He worked with the 24th Air Force Expeditionary Unit, which supported the 82nd Airborne Division.
The first mission of his unit was recovery. Soldiers used large construction equipment and manual labor for roughly two weeks to recover the bodies of 50 U.S. embassy workers who had been housed in a hotel in Port-au-Prince.
Tripp-Delmont junior Kaitlin Buchholz spent May 26 to June 2 in Ti-Riviere with the Good News Reformed Church youth group in Sioux Falls and the Mission: Haiti group. The town is 120 miles from Port-au-Prince.
Buchholz made about a half-dozen quilts for refugees, and her group conducted a Bible school.
