GULF COAST CRISIS: OFF THE GULF COAST

Navy ship nearby underused
Craft with food, water, doctors needed orders

By Stephen J. Hedges
Chicago Tribune national correspondent
Published September 4, 2005

"ON THE USS BATAAN -- While federal and state emergency planners scramble to get more military relief to Gulf Coast communities stricken by Hurricane Katrina, a massive naval goodwill station has been cruising offshore, underused and waiting for a larger role in the effort...."
"...The role in the relief effort of the sizable medical staff on board the Bataan was not up to the Navy, but to FEMA officials directing the overall effort."
