What are you doing now:
Back to work as a Paramedic Captain at Fort Benning, GA....trying to keep all these Army of One Soldiers healthy!!! (Like only a Navy Hospital Corpsman can!!) After serving 3 years on the USS INDEPENDENCE as an ABF,  I took a 4 year break from the military. I went into the Army in 1995 for 4 years as a 91B, Combat Medic. I got out of the Army in 1999. I joined back up with the Navy Reserve in 2001 and have been loving it since!!

 USNS Comfort (T-AH-20) Details

USNS Comfort (T-AH-20)
Additional Information:

USNS Comfort (T-AH-20) is the third 
United States Navy ship to bear the name Comfort, and the second Mercy-class hospital ship to join the navy fleet. The USNS prefix identifies the Comfort as a non-commissioned ship owned by the U.S. Navy and crewed by civilians from the Military Sealift Command(MSC). In accordance with theGeneva Conventions, USNS Comfort and her crew do not carry any offensive weapons. Firing upon the Comfort would be considered a war crime as the ship only carries weapons for self-defense

Like her sister ship USNS MercyComfort was built as a San Clemente Class oil tanker in 1976 by the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company. Her original name was SS Rose City and she was launched from San Diego, California.

Her career as an oil tanker ended when she was delivered to the Navy on December 1, 1987. Now, as a hospital shipComfort's new duties include providing emergency, on-site care for U.S. combatant forces deployed in war or other operations. Operated by the Military Sealift CommandComfort provides rapid, flexible, and mobile medical and surgical services to support Marine Corps Air/Ground Task Forces deployed ashore, Army and Air Force units deployed ashore, and naval amphibious task forces and battle forces afloat. Secondarily, she provides mobile surgical hospital service for use by appropriate U.S. government agencies in disaster or humanitarian relief or limited humanitarian care incident to these missions or peacetime military operations. Comfort is more advanced than a field hospital but less capable than a traditional hospital on land.[2]

When not actively deployed, Comfort is kept in a state of reduced operations in Baltimore harbor. She has been used many times over the years and kept ready to ship out of Baltimore with five days notice.
