Former Navy captain says Haiti still in need

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Former captain of the navy's hospital ship, the U.S.N.S Comfort, is in Savannah talking about the thousands still needing help in Haiti.

Captain James Ware is speaking at the Savannah Navy League's monthly meeting. He and his 1,000 person team rushed to Haiti after the devastating earthquake. Now he's back here where he plans to stay for a very long time.

"I'll actually be serving over at the Naval Hospital Beaufort and Parris Island, but my intent is to settle my family here after 28 years of serving around the world with the Navy, as my family did as well," Capt. Ware said.

Capt. Ware says the United States couldn't have helped in Haiti alone. It was a joint effort with Haiti, other countries, and non-government entities like the American Red Cross.
