US Navy Hospital Ship - Comfort
We had the privilege of attending a guided tour of the USNS Comfort - hospital ship that is on a five month tour of the Caribbean and Latin America. The first stop was Jamaica, then it will continue to Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, Nicarogua, (sp) El Salvadore, Costa Rica, Panama, and Haiti - ending the 1st of September. Here we are on the 32 person launch that took us from shore to the ship - next is the door into the ship - we joked about having to climb rope ladders! These are the Nave personnel that guided us around - I thought their blue camo was a little funny - so you fall into the ocean and you don't want to be seen???
