Homeland Security?

Hawaii is getting help from the Army and National Guard in their battle against the invasive aquatic kariba weed (Salvinia molesta). According to this article from the Honolulu Advertiser, dozens of soldiers will be chipping in to mechanically remove tons of the weed from Lake Wilson. The plants, which cover almost every inch of the lake, have also been sprayed with herbicide to impede their growth.
