Greetings from St. John’s, Antigua!

As you know this two-island nation is the third stop of the Navy Hospital Ship Comfort’s Continuing Promise ’09 goodwill tour in the Caribbean and Latin America. I will be onboard COMFORT beginning Tuesday morning and will depart back to the states on Saturday.

I am loaded with a notebook and two cameras as well as the drive to document for the naval blogosphere how the men and women of COMFORT are winning the hearts and minds of people everywhere they go!

I will post as often as I can when I am not out in the field. Anything in particular you want me to report just drop me a comment.

Stay tuned!

  • Jim, Have a safe and productive tour! I look forward to your reports. Best, Daren

  • Looking forward to your notes.

    I’d be very interested in hearing your view on how much “more” Comfort and crew could accomplish if she could reach inland more readily (air)

    Thanks Daren! Campbell, I will find out for you. From my perch, if the ship could dock at a pier, it would save a lot of time ferrying people back and forth.

    Congrats on your pending success in Haiti. I cannot wait to see the capabilities of your crew on this magnificent ship! Fair Winds!
