At first light this morning we were approaching our anchorage off the city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. We already had patients aboard from last night, and it didn't take long for more to start coming.
First we received patients that were transferred to us from the USS CARL VINSON and the USS BATON. Some of these men and women had horrible injuries and in short order were on their way to the operating room where our impressive team of surgeons went to work. As the morning progressed, more and more patients came and an awesome team of professionals took great care of them. It takes more than a doctor to care for these patients and our teams of Hospital Corpsmen, Nurses, and Patient Admin personnel combined with our patient transporters, security personnel, air crews and flight deck personnel did a great job.
Well, I have to run to our 1400 planning meeting.
