The USNS Comfort brings together some of the brightest, most experienced people from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets to serve others from around the world. Even though this was my forth time volunteering on a navy hospital ship, I still felt a little intimidated working alongside so many gifted volunteers. But I’ve learned that everyone makes their own unique contribution—I felt that mine was to make everyone feel loved, valued, and recognized, both patients and volunteers.
This year I was assigned to work in the pre-operation area, which meant I was able to care for and befriend all the surgery-bound patients.
