Thank you firefighter. I thought this one was a little unusual in that it uses the term South China Sea instead of Western Pacific/WESTPAC or Tonkin Gulf.

USNS MERCY (T-AH-19) San Clemente class super tanker and Mercy class leader Hospital ship in service since 1987

 

This is from her maiden voyage of mercy to the Philippines in 1987. (It's an error patch too, USSN rather than USNS)

USS HAVEN (AH-12) In active service 1945 to 1957.

 

Haven took part in fleet maneuvers and provided hospital services for sailors through 1955 and 1956 and decommissioned at Long Beach 30 June 1957. She was placed in an "In Reserve, In Service" status, and remained moored at Long Beach acting as a floating hospital. She was struck from the Navy List on 1 March 1967. Haven was returned to the Maritime Administration Reserve Fleet on 5 June 1967.

USNS COMFORT (T-AH-20) Mercy class Hospital Ship in service since 1987 - Operation Enduring Freedom 2003

 

Iraq War (2002–03) Invasion of Iraq
Comfort was ordered to activate on December 26, 2002, and set sail for the U.S. Central Command area of operations on January 6, 2003. After stopping in Diego Garcia to embark additional medical personnel flown in from the National Naval Medical Center, the ship proceeded to the Persian Gulf to serve as an afloat trauma center in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Comfort remained in the Persian Gulf for 56 days providing expert medical care to wounded U.S. military personnel as well as injured Iraqi civilians and enemy prisoners of war. When Comfort returned to Baltimore on June 12, 2003, it marked the completion of a nearly six-month activation. During this time, the ship conducted more than 800 helicopter deck landings to bring aboard personnel, patients, and cargo. Comfort's Medical Treatment Facility had also performed 590 surgical procedures, transfused more than 600 units of blood, developed more than 8,000 radiographic images, and treated nearly 700 patients, including almost 200 Iraqi civilians and enemy prisoners of war
