    NORFOLK, Va. (Feb. 11, 2022) – Lt. Col. Andrew Turner visited the mercy-class hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20), with family, friends, and colleagues, to give thanks for the comfort he received 19 years ago from the medical staff who painstakingly cared for the injuries he sustained during a helicopter crash in Iraq, 19 years ago.

    Sharing this tour with family, friends, and colleagues only seemed appropriate, especially considering that those in attendance have served or currently serve in the military, Turner said. “This experience was uniquely special because I had my wife at my side to share in the moment. But more importantly, experiencing the ship as a visitor instead of as a patient, I was able to witness firsthand the depth and breadth of Comfort’s medical capability and readiness – Totally impressive.”

    Above is a picture of Turner and his wife Kathleen Turner aboard USNS Comfort.
