The SS Felix Riesenberg was a Liberty Ship built by the United States during World War II. It was named after Felix Riesenberg, an American maritime officer, civil engineer, explorer, and author of marine textbooks. The ship was laid down in November 1944 under a MARCOM contract by J.A. Jones Construction in Brunswick, Georgia. It was sponsored by Mrs. N.M. Campbell. After launch, the vessel was allocated to the American West African Lines Inc., and sold in March 1951 to Pacific Waterways Corporation where it served under the name of Transatlantic. It was sold again in 1959 and then again, in 1971, to a company based in Taiwan, for scrapping.

Treatments for these diseases can be expensive and the care you require can be extensive.
