A mission of Mercy sets sail for the Indian Ocean

The Mercy will act as the flagship for the annual “Pacific Partnership” mission, a five-month goodwill tour that’s slated to unite the hospital ship with its sidekick, the Singapore-based fast transport Falls River — plus more than 800 military and civilian personnel from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, France, Peru and Japan and nongovernmental organizations like Project Hope, Hope Worldwide and Project Handclasp.
