The U.S. Navy Came A-Calling

On 8th March, under the arrangement by the Pantai Valley chapter of the Rotary Club, a group of U.S sailors and marines led by their chaplain came by PBSNS for a courtesy call as well as to do some community work. These young Americans were smartly dressed in dark blue uniform and marine fatigue ready for menial work.

Arriving in a chartered coach these uniformed personnel quickly made their way to the meeting room where a briefing was given to explain our work before they were shown around the centre, after which they proceeded to clean up the drains and prune the branches of the trees outside.

After taking lunch they brought they left for their ship docked in Port Kelang. We really appreciated the help given by these young Americans. We hope that they have taken with them some memory of the kind of community work we do here to share with families and friends. Here are some pictures for the record.
