U.S. ships are massing off the shore of Myanmar, preparing to assist in disaster relief efforts after last week's cyclone. But the military personnel haven't been called into action yet.

Marine Col. John Mayer talks with Alex Chadwick about the stand-by mission aboard the USS Essex and what's keeping help from getting to the devastated country.
