NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – The crew of USNS Comfort will have to wait longer than expected before they get to enjoy the comforts of home again.
The hospital ship was scheduled to return from a six-month deployment Sunday, but the homecoming was delayed because of the bad weather forecast here. It’s now due to return Wednesday, Sept. 30.
More than 700 military and civilian personnel serve aboard USNS Comfort (T-AH 20). They have been to 11 nations in Central and South America and the Caribbean in support of Continuing Promise 2015 during this six-month deployment.
