Sailors from Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Halsey (DDG 97) volunteered at Inarajan Elementary School in Inarajan, Guam July 18.
Halsey made a port call to the island after departing their homeport in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, for a deployment to the U.S. 7th Fleet’s area of responsibility.
Sailors discussed their careers with students, helped them with math problems and sat down to learn more about their hobbies and what they want to be when they get older.
“I think they’ll take out of it that they can be whatever they want to be,” said Seaman Operations Specialist Ashlyn Millsparker. “Seeing us come out and helping people they might want to help people too when they get older.”
Millsparker added that volunteering for events allow Sailors to interact with the community and foster their relationships.
