Let’s take a moment of silent remembrance. Never forget. #9/11 #neverforget #navy #truesacrifice

"Strength forged through sacrifice. Never forget."

Cutting through the water with a bow forged from 7.5 tons of World Trade Center steel, USS NEW YORK (LPD 21) carries much more than just the name of the Big Apple wherever it travels. It's an instrument of freedom and peace.

Su***de Prevention Month is not just a 30-day blitz of su***de prevention efforts; it is the starting point for year-long conversations about how to be there for Every Sailor, Every Day. It serves as a launchpad to reengage with topics that help promote a culture supportive of psychological health, emotional wellness, protective factors, connectedness and seeking help. This September, the Every Sailor, Every Day campaign will continue to lead the charge for the Navy’s year-long su***de prevention efforts, fostering meaningful dialogue about psychological health, su***de, early intervention, recognizing risk and warning signs, lethal means safety, self-care and more through its popular 1 Small ACT message.

I bought these when onboard during Desert Storm
Greetings. Just wondering, are you busy? Your colleagues on the west coast are detained, as you know, by Mercy Maintenance. Any chance you could step in and cruise on over to LA? Thank you. ❤
Where is this ship located now?
30 years ago today The Comfort was celebrating Thanksgiving in the Persian Gulf. This from the Persian Gulf Cruise book.
I can neither confirm nor deny that is me in the center of the picture. Shield/Storm CASREC!
Nice photos!
We should send USNS Comfort to Beirut - they are short hospital beds. This is what the US does best!
We miss seeing your posts! What’s happening on the Comfort? Hope all is well and you are resting and getting ready for the next deployment to bring comfort to broken humanity! Praying for each of you!! ❤️🙏🇺🇸✝️⚔️🕊
Took these from Virginia Beach on April 1 as Comfort was returning from NYC
THANKS FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE AND WELCOME BACK TO NORFOLK
Thank you for taking care of New York City, the place I grew up and love! "GO NAVY BEAT COVID-19" Picture taken by Public Safety Officer at roof top of CUNY/BMCC
Thank You for your support. God bless you and the hardworking and dedicated staff. Whether you were under utilized or not the mere fact of having your presence and additional staff here in NYC ease our minds and comforted us that we are not alone.
