CARIBBEAN SEA (Oct. 6, 2017) Sailors transport a patient from Menonita Hospital in Caguas, Puerto Rico after arriving on board the Military Sea Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20). Comfort arrived in the Arecibo-Manati region to provide medical services with additional visits being planned around the island. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and Puerto Rico Department of Health representatives are prioritizing patients at each stop prior to Comfort's arrival. The Department of Defense is supporting Federal Emergency Management Agency, the lead federal agency, in helping those affected by Hurricane Maria to minimize suffering and is one component of the overall whole-of-government response effort.
