"This flight carries not only much-needed supplies and skilled union labor, but also the love and support of more than 33,000 IAM members at United who will continue helping the people of Puerto Rico recover", said IAM General Vice President Sito Pantoja. They hugged and then the vice president walked to another table.

Water service has been restored to about half of customers across the island, according to the governor, who has said he hopes 25 percent of electricity customers will have power by the end of October.

For every USA president, there comes a time to assume the role of the nation's comforter-in-chief, a leader who seeks to bring the country together and lift spirits in the midst of a national tragedy.

In this U.S. Navy handout, Marines assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 162, embarked aboard the amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), and local volunteers unload food from an MV-22 Osprey September 27, 2017 in Jayuya, Puerto Rico.

He says he's been inspired by the "warm smiles, the cheerfulness and the determination" of the people he's met. Rally organizers called on financial institutions and investors holding Puerto Rican bonds to forgive the island's debt during what they call a humanitarian crisis after Hurricane Maria.

He said Trump has demonstrated "less divisive moments" as president, particularly his deal with Democrats to put off a clash over the federal budget.

The island and the emergency workers are still in the early recovery phase, clearing debris and repairing roads for accessibility and distribution of essential supplies, as well as restoring power and water infrastructures.

"I would like yous to go to the center", Burgos requested. Wednesdays through Fridays at the U.S. Army Recruiting Office in Tyler, 4750 S. Broadway.

On arrival Friday, the vice president's plane flew over homes stripped of the roofs, toppled trees and debris strewn in yards. On Monday, Oct. 2, 11 days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, Heredia's mother, Ines, was finally able to get access to a phone and talk to Heredia. Wide areas are marred by telephone poles snapped in two by the storm, leaving transmission lines in tangled roadside heaps. But this doesn't make up for the slow initial response by the federal government.

How to Help: Those who would like to donate items Ramon Rivera and Marlee Arnold can send to family and others in need in Puerto Rico can drop off items 9 5 p.m Mondays and Tuesdays, 9 7 p.m. Personnel from Mexico's Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) will head to Puerto Rico to help fix the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity.
