Richard Cusimano, left, and Ben Delatte pose at the Camarones collection site in Puerto Rico on Dec. 27, 2017. Cusimano and Delatte were two of three U.S. Army Corps of Engineers personnel supporting the debris mission here that ran toward the sound of calls for help to find a man that had fallen on his bike and was unable to stop the bleeding from a puncture wound sustained while bracing for the fall. Cusimano, with the New Orleans District, is a quality assurance inspector in at the Canovanas, Fajardo, Loiza, Rio Grande and Luquillo debris collection sites – a role he assumed from the third person, Anthony Frost, to come to the aid of the injured man. Delatte is also from the New Orleans District and is the zone manager for more than 30 debris sites in 10 municipalities. Both serve with the Louisiana National Guard’s 205th Engineer Battalion.

Trucks carrying vegetative debris from Hurricane Maria deposit their loads at the Los Alamos Temporary Debris Reduction Site (TDRS) in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico Jan. 10. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is leading the federal debris management mission as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Hurricane Maria response effort. The USACE mission has collected more than 2 million cubic yards of hurricane debris in Puerto Rico to date. 

To get a sense of how much vegetative debris was created by Hurricane Maria, Peter Gibson, the USACE debris zone engineer for Zone 2, which includes Guaynabo, said locals told him the greenery before Hurricane Maria was so thick they couldn't see their neighbors. 

"After the storm hit, everything turned brown and they had a revelation of how many neighbors they had, because they could see them for the first time," he said. "All that debris, all the trees and all those sticks, they wound up on the ground, and they clog everything from roadways to waterways, so that's what we're out here trying to remove."
