USS Enterprise sends Sailors to Haiti

The Nimitz Class aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise, which is currently in the Newport News Shipyard undergoing maintenance, will be sending 47 sailors to Haiti to assist in relief efforts.
Eleven are French-Creole speakers who will be doing translating on the hospital ship, the USNS Comfort. According to Navy.mil, there will be “air traffic controllers, aviation boatswain’s mates, ship’s servicemen, information systems technicians and several sailors from various specialties who will serve in general duties.” Despite having very little notice, when the call came the volunteer response from the sailors was overwhelming.

Kudos to the Enterprise sailors who are helping out in Haiti!
