The Comforts were completed in 1944. They were Maritime Commission C1-B hulls converted to unarmed and brightly marked hospital ships. They had Navy crews, but their hospital staffs were provided by the Army.

These ships were theoretically immune to attack or seizure under international law, but both sides violated these rules at times. Comfort herself was struck by a suicide plane near Okinawa in spite of the characteristic hospital ship markings. Although she was badly damaged and her entire surgical staff were killed, she did not sink. Hope was attacked several times by aircraft in spite of her markings, but without damage. 

Units in the Pacific:

Comfort       completed 1944-5-5 (San Pedro)
Hope completed 1944-8-15 (San Pedro)
Mercy completed 1944-8-7 (San Pedro)
