USNS Comfort

This huge Navy  hospital ship left Baltimore Port last Saturday morning, one of our friend in cafemom was tellin us that her husbands was in this ship, she said they left abruptly to go to Haiti to help the earthquake victims there. She was asking for snacks like crackers and cookies to the members of our group so that they could give it away to the troops inside the ship as a snack.
The Doctors and Nurses aboard the ship are from the National  Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The hospital where I gave birth to my youngest son Perry.
I was just watching the news today and the ship is in Haiti treating the victims, but they cant dock in the port because it was destroyed by another earthquake this morning.

It would be a great help for the victims. So sad to see in the TV news: people in Haiti fought each other for food...
