Sailors Visit Sick Children

Most people come to Savannah on Saint Patrick's Day to party. But some are working in some good deeds while they're here. Sailors from the Navy ships The Sullivans and Philippine Sea paid a visit to the young patients at Backus Children's Hospital today, passing out flags, hats and other goodies.

They say their port visits are more than just chances to party ashore. "Whenever we go to the various communities, we try to do community relations projects so that we can show that the Navy's not just about fighting and shooting missiles, but we're about sharing and showing love," said Lt. Holman Agard of the USS Philippine Sea.

Sailors from both ships will march in tomorrow's parade.
