Volunteers settle into their home away from home

The fourth rotation of Project HOPE volunteers met up with the United States Navy helicopters in New Amsterdam, Guyana yesterday. The team was then introduced to and received a tour of their home for the next couple weeks, the USS Iwo Jima. Once aboard the ship the volunteers were given a quick safety briefing, rules, and a brief history and eidetic of the Navy.

They then met with the various units they will be working with and received their schedules. Realizing the next few days would be busy the volunteers made use of their bit of free time by getting acquainted with the ship and settling in.
