Haiti - FLASH : 300 U.S. Marines sent as reinforcements in Haiti
Friday the Pentagon ordered the military transport ship USS Mesa Verde to participate in the relief operations in Haiti following the passage of Hurricane Matthew. The Mesa Verde carries 300 Marines soldiers specialized in medical emergency assistance and reconstruction and has three heavy transport helicopter CH-53 Super Stallion and landing craft.

This vessel will strengthen the US military assistance device, which already has 250 men and 9 helicopters in Haiti https://www.icihaiti.com/en/news-18838-icihaiti-flash-usa-helicopters-and-us-soldiers-arrive-in-the-country.html
