Kidding. But seriously, the USNS Mercy arrived back in Pearl Harbor on Wednesday and did not hit anything as it passed the USS Arizona Memorial.

The hospital ship arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam in Hawaii after supporting Pacific Partnership, the largest annual multilateral humanitarian assistance and disaster relief preparedness mission conducted in the Indio-Asia-Pacific region.

The last time the USNS Mercy was in Pearl Harbor was in May when it accidentally allided with a floating dock attached to the USS Arizona Memorial, causing damage to the dock but thankfully none to the memorial building or the remains of the USS Arizona itself. The ship was departing with the assistance of tugs when the accident occurred.
