Recently, the Grampaw Pettibone Squadron was pleased to honor the Sailors of the Quarter and Sailors of the Year from Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach. Because of the unique nature of NWSSB, we had eight SOQs present and two SOYs. We were also honored to have some of the wives of the sailors present along with the Senior Chief of NMC. The Executive Officer of NWSSB, CDR Erik Franzen, assisted in the presentation of awards to the sailors. The task could not have been accomplished without his participation. GPS would also like to acknowledge and to thank The Crab Cooker in Tustin, O’Malley’s on Main, Hennessey’s Tavern, Beachwood BBQ, Yucatan Grill and Athens West for contributing gift certificates for the honorees. Special thanks to USAA and Eric Page for the special gifts to all of the SOQs and SOYs. And, finally, thank you to H&R Block, Long Beach District, for the gifts for the Sailors of the Year.
