Like everything else in lower Manhattan, Hurricane Sandy knocked out power at the Nation Guard's armory. The 69th Infantry Regiment would've been screwed. Victoria's Secret saved their asses. Here's how the servicemen got their groove back.

Every year, the lingerie company tapes its fashion show at the regiment's armory, and this year, it happened to coincide with Sandy. For the show, they brought eight 500-Watt generators to the Armory. The Victoria's Secret producers were happy to help and by Tuesday night, the Armory was fully powered. Hurray for bras! [Wired]

It's great that they were able to get power restored at the armory, but am I the only one that is worried that the military couldn't handle a power outage on their own?
