FILE - In this April 6, 2014, file photo, provided by the U.S. Coast Guard, sailors from the frigate USS Vandegrift assist in the rescue of the Kaufman family with a sick infant on the ship's small boat, as part of a joint U.S. Navy, Coast Guard and California Air National Guard rescue effort. None of the three federal agencies that helped rescue the ill 1-year-old, Lyra Kaufman, and her family from their broken down sailboat about 900 miles off Mexico's Pacific coast plan to seek reimbursement for the cost of the operation. Officials from the Navy, Coast Guard and California Air National Guard said Tuesday, April 8, 2014, they don't charge for search-and-rescue missions. "We don't want people in trouble at sea to hesitate to call for help for fear they'll be charged for assistance," said Lt. Anna Dixon of the 11th Coast Guard District, which oversaw the operation but did not send vessels or aircraft to the stranded sailboat. She said that helping at sea is a time-honored tradition and a requirement of international maritime convention. The Navy warship that picked up the family on Sunday is expected to reach San Diego on Wednesday. (AP Photo/U.S. Coast Guard, File)

In this Saturday, March 22, 2014 photo provided by the U.S. Navy, the Virginia-class attack submarine USS New Mexico, background, surfaces through the arctic ice near Ice Camp Nautilus, north of Alaska. Cracks in polar sea ice are prompting the Navy to break down an ice camp north of Alaska that provided support for an exercise involving submarines. The Navy says in a release Monday, March 24, 2014, that the commander of submarine forces ordered an early end to Ice Camp Nautilus because shifts in winds created instabilities in ice floes.
