Although the Comfort, and its sister ship that serves as the class’ namesake, the Mercy, are U.S. Navy ships, they come equipped with no offensive capabilities whatsoever, and exist solely to provide care to those in need on a level unrivaled by any other expeditionary organization.  The vessel began its life in 1976 as a San-Clemente class oil tanker named the SS Rose City.  It was converted and renamed in a ceremony on December 1st of 1987, when it began its new life in support of humanitarian operations the world over.
