The US Air Force has already flown in hundreds of rescue workers and tons of supplies to the Haitian Port-au-Prince airport. 3,500 troops from the 82nd Airborne Division and 2200 Marines from the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Force will deploy on Haiti to provide air and restore some semblance of order. The Marines will be deployed by three Navy ships, the USS Bataan, the USS Fort McHenry and USS Carter Hall, which has machinery for producing drinkable water. Other Navy ships due to deploy off Haiti include the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, which has a fully functional hospital as well as a squadron of helicopters. The hospital ship USS Comfort will arrive in about a week.
As a global superpower and a leader in equality and human rights, the United States will lend aid, military forces, and offer other supplies necessary to help recovery. The U.S. is just one of many, many nations helping out in the Haiti relief effort. The U.S. also played a role in raising money and helping out after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.
