Poll: Romney Edges Huckabee By 3% In Iowa | Main | Iraqi Government Will Incorporate Some Sunni Militiamen Into Regular Forces
December 18, 2007

A Child in Need

The USS Ronald Reagan on station, got it under control.

14 year old Laura Montero, suffered acute appendicitis while on a cruise with her family. Her inflamed appendix burst, and that required drastic surgical attention.

And the USS Reagan responded with two helicopters, and a contingent of caring lifesavers. And performed her emergency appendectomy on board. They saved her life.

The video is particularly sweet (upper right), these warriors, the best of us, caring for a little girl in trouble. Very touching

Laura is fine, and will recover from her ordeal.

What a nice name for a kid too.
