Description:Photographed by U.S. Public Health Service (USPHS) Lt. Cmdr. Gary Brunette, this image depicted a typical street scene in Haiti after the country had been struck by a massive earthquake in 2010. Wearing their camouflage uniforms, note the members of the USPHS discussing the ongoing emergency relief efforts with local community members.
The USS Bataan and her crew set out underway early January, 2010, in order to provide humanitarian assistance and disaster relief support to Operation Unified Response in Haiti after a 7.0 magnitude 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.
