PEARL HARBOR (May 18, 2016) Sailors assigned to the hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) man the rails as the ship transits Pearl Harbor and prepares to moor at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Mercy is deployed in support of Pacific Partnership 2016. Pacific Partnership, in its 11th year, is the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the region, and was born out of the military-led response to the tsunami that struck parts of Southeast Asia in December 2004. It is designed to improve disaster response preparedness while enhancing partnerships with participating nations in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
