Scripted and produced by Jan Herman. "In late April and early May of 1975, the destroyer escort USS Kirk became a haven for refugees fleeing South Vietnam. Kirk's officers and enlisted personnel -- trained as warriors -- instantly transformed their man-of-war into a humanitarian assistance ship. Desperation and anguish gave way to reassurance as crew members fed their unexpected guests, dispensed medical care, diapered infants and provided hope to a dispirited people." PIN#806882

During high-intensity conflicts, acute stress reactions have the potential to compromise unit effectiveness. WRAIR is testing a solution: iCOVER....
