USNS Comfort Continues CP-15 Deployment

The Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) departed Colon, Panama, on June 9 after completing an eight-day mission stop in support of Continuing Promise 2015 (CP-15).

CP-15 mission personnel worked alongside volunteers from Panama’s Ministry of Health, government and medical professionals to provide residents with medical, dental and veterinary services from May 31 to June 7.

Comfort will transit through the Panama Canal as it heads to the next mission stop in El Salvador.

Continuing Promise is a U.S. Southern Command-sponsored and U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet-conducted deployment to conduct civil-military operations including humanitarian-civil assistance, subject matter expert exchanges, medical, dental, veterinary and engineering support and disaster response to partner nations and to show the United States’ continued support and commitment to Central and South America and the Caribbean.
