Medical Ship Assists After Hurricane


On our recent trip to San Diego, Marci and Donnie took us by this ship and shared some information about it.

Today in the news the following information was reported regarding helping with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey:


The Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort arrived in San Juan yesterday, bringing with it state-of-the-art medical facilities and crew.
The ship is sailed by civilian mariners of the Military Sealift Command and staffed by Navy medics from around the United States. The majority of those on the ship come from Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Virginia, but there are sailors from at least 12 different bases aboard as well, Navy officials said.
