The hospital ship USNS Comfort is on an 11-week medical support mission to Central and South America as part of U.S. Southern Command’s “Enduring Promise” initiative. We would like to give a shout out to one of our own who is on that mission: Hospitalman Jerusha Hainsworth, an amazing young woman.
Working with health and government partners in Ecuador, Peru, Colombia and Honduras, Hainsworth is part of the embarked medical team that provides care on board and at land-based medical sites, helping to relieve pressure on national medical systems caused partly by an increase in cross-border migrants. Hainsworth is part of a deployment that reflects the United States’ enduring promise of friendship, partnership and solidarity with the Americas.
Her dad Darryl Hainsworth owns Havasu Barber Shop (next to Juicys) and is a proud papa and patriot. KNTR Talk and Radio Central thank Jerusha for her service and we look forward to welcoming you home!!
