Outstanding sailors honored by the Grampaw Pettibone Squadron

In the midst of the daily routine at the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station, there is usually someone who rises above the average and catches our eye. It is with the recognition of the Sailors of the Quarter that we honor those who deserve special recognition for a job well done.

The Command Senior Chief for the Weapons Station, Paul Ellis; GMC Jamario Perry; and LCDR Jesse Alvarez participated in the presentation of the Certificates of Appreciation from GPS.

Also, attractive medallions from the USAA Insurance Company were presented to the sailors. Local restaurants contributed coupons.
