These images are in the public domain because they were taken by US military personnel to document relief efforts in Haiti. Captions are also taken from these sites; italics indicate that they are verbatim. Several are from the Coast Guard’s website; the others are from the Navy’s. These are just a tiny sampling of growing collections at both sites. 

Isn’t this amazing? Imagine being a rescue swimmer for the Coast Guard and finding yourself delivering a baby on a flight deck. Well done, guys. 

 PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – An Air Station Clearwater, Fla., helicopter crew aboard the Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma assisted in the delivery of a male Haitian newborn on the cutter Jan. 16, 2010. A pregnant Haitian citizen went into labor on the flight deck as the helicopter was refueling aboard the cutter. The rescue swimmer from Coast Guard HH-60 helicopter CG6024 then delivered the five-pound newborn. The mother and child were taken to a hospital in Cap Haitien, Haiti for further medical treatment and were in good condition. Tahoma was transferring Haitian citizens to Cap Haitien from Port-au-Prince for medical assistance when the woman went into labor. U.S. Coast Guard photo.
