By our count, 35 nations dedicated 75 helicopters, 41 ships, 43 airplanes and more than 30,000 troops (including medical teams, engineers, air traffic controllers and many other needed specialties) to the relief effort. This was in many ways precedent-setting and we should capitalize on the opportunity to prepare ourselves to be (even) better the next time.
