Puerto Rico relief efforts hit close to home
Iker Urruchi, Military Sealift Command’s USNS Brittin boatswain’s mate, operates a forklift on the vessel at Port of Ponce, Puerto Rico, Nov. 3, 2017. Urruchi, originally from Ponce, was unable to communicate with his family on the island for several weeks, following hurricane Irma and due to loss of electricity across more than 70 percent of the island.
