Mercy and Comfort When You’re Sailing in Dire Straits


USNS Mercy and USNS Comfort will be deployed on the East Coast and the West Coast. These ships will not be used for Coronavirus patients. They will be used for other medical emergencies to free up land-based hospital beds for Coronavirus patients. Many of the doctors and nurses on these ships are reservists so the Pentagon will try to staff them with as many available full-time military personnel as they can without impacting civilian hospitals.

    Good response. What do we have as a people that can mitigate the damage. I have recently listed to the podcast “the cold war: what we saw.”

    Think about the Berlin Airlift. 

    America can conquer things that at first seem impossible. 

    May G-d hear our prayer.
