Atlantic Ocean (Sep. 2, 2005) - Thousands of meals, ready-to-eat (MRE) are stacked on pallets in hangar bay two aboard the Nimitz class aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), waiting to be distributed to those in need along the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. The Norfolk. Va., based ship will serve as the command center and afloat staging base in the waters off the Gulf Coast. The Navy's involvement in the humanitarian assistance operations is led by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Department of Defense.
