SAIPAN, Commonwealth of the Northern Marian Islands - U.S. Army Reserve Soldiers of the 9th Mission Support Command, currently assigned to Joint Task Group- Saipan, Task Force - West, assisting with Super Typhoon Yutu recovery of the region, joined the Office of Youth Affairs, Office of the Governor, at the Kagman Community Center, Saipan Dec. 15, to give back in a different way. Soldiers distributed gifts and shared holiday cheer with families.

Super Typhoon Yutu is the strongest typhoon to impact the Mariana Islands on record, as well as the second-strongest system to hit the United States and its unincorporated territories by wind speed, as well as tied for second with Hurricane Camille by pressure. After Super Typhoon Yutu hit the islands of Saipan and Tinian Oct. 24, several federal agencies immediately began a coordinated disaster response effort, including the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Defense and local government, to help the people of these islands recover. DOD forces used in the initial typhoon response have begun redeploying at the direction of FEMA, based on the needs of the local government, however many Soldiers of the region continue to serve the recovery efforts.
