Teddies are being given to hundreds of children, some airlifted for surgeries, on board the USNS Comfort. Pictures speak a thousand words, as staff bring joy to frightened youngsters and their families whose lives will never be the same. Thanks to the USNS Comfort for their help in reaching hurting children.
When this youngster returned to his home in Ladyville, Belize after his surgery, he was delighted by the helicopter ride back, but sure held on tight to his teddy bear!
Guatemalan Vice President, Dr Eduardo Stein Barillas, visted patients aboard the Military Sealift Command as it continued its four month humanitarian deployment in the US Naval Forces Southern Command.
