Over 3 million of our fellow American citizens of Puerto Rico are in dire straits.

The island is without power, water and supplies are in short supply, finding safe shelter is getting harder to come by, and hospitals are already filled to capacity.

The U.S. Navy has a hospital ship that it has sent on humanitarian missions across the globe and that hospital ship, the USNS Comfort, is needed now to help our fellow American citizens living in Puerto Rico. 

As a hospital ship, the Comfort is uniquely capable of provided much needed medical relief to those needing it in Puerto Rico. It is staffed with hundreds of medical and support personnel who can provide everything from routine medical care for non-life threatening conditions to operating rooms and intensive care facilities to tackle the most serious situations.

We call on the Defense Secretary, Navy Secretary, and President to send the USNS Comfort to Puerto Rico to aid our fellow citizens in their time of need.
