This is an email we received last week in regards to the Huakai and it’s mission to Haiti.
I was out in Norfolk this week and met up with a good friend of mine from high school. She is a doctor in the Navy and deployed with the USS Comfort to Haiti.

HUAKAI UNDERWAY FOR HAITI
(NEW ALBANY Ind.) January 27, 2010 – Hornblower Marine Services (HMS) is underway with the Huakai, the first fast-ferry activated by the Maritime Administration in wake of the Haiti earthquake disaster. The former Hawaii Superferry has left port from Fort Eustis, Virginia and will be traveling the 1,175 miles to Port-au-Prince to join the relief efforts.
Those of you that have followed this mission since January have seen the videos, pictures and accounts from some of the crew of the HSV Huakai and its relief efforts in Haiti.
Here, we get to introduce them to you a bit.
