    Good they found him. Pulling into Haiti you would see "dead heads". Dead heads are logs that float vertically, bobbing up and down in the water. They look like heads. Unfortunately, sometimes they weren't logs, but bodies (I was lucky enough not to see that any time my ship repatrioted Haitians.

    Saving a life is a great thing, and a feeling that is hard to replicate. Nicely done Stennis crew.
