Portable water heaters and shower facilities arrive from the USS Essex and Marines and Sailors assemble those facilities at a local elementary school on the island of Oshima. For many island residents, the showers provide them the first opportunity to bathe since the tsunami hit on March 11. The shower facilities are able to cycle through approx. 30 people per hour, but are only open during daylight hours to conserve energy usage. Establishing the hygienic facilities is one small part of Operation Field Day, the mission to support Japan Ground Self Defense Force in the cleanup of Oshima.
