Description:This image was one of many captured by Lt. Cmdr. Gary Brunette, a United States Public Health Service (USPHS) officer, who’d been deployed to the Caribbean nation of Haiti shortly after the country’s earthquake in January 2010. Strung by their gills along what appeared to be a denuded palm frond, these fish were for sale inside one of the country’s Internal Displaced Persons (IDP) camps with its many makeshift tent homes.
Transported to Haiti by way of the naval vessel, the USS Bataan, Lt. Cmdr. Brunette, along with the rest of the involved USPHS crew, set out in early January, 2010 to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief support to Operation Unified Response in Haiti after a magnitude 7.0 earthquake devastated the island nation. Bataan’s Navy/Marine Corps Team established nine landing zones to facilitate aid distribution, ultimately moving more than 1,000 pallets of relief supplies ashore and treating close to 1,000 Haitians both aboard Bataan in the ship’s medical facility, and working side-by-side local and volunteer physicians at clinics throughout Haiti.
