Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2011.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. The U.S. Navy has become a first-responder for several of the worst natural disasters over the past decade. Rather than complain about this role, the Navy embraced their participation in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HA/DR) by incorporating it as a core competency in their 2007 maritime strategy. This thesis explains the naval capabilities useful in conducting HA/DR and the relative strengths and weaknesses of current and future naval platforms in performing HA/DR.
