Benfold Hosts Chinese-American Fans of the U.S. Navy
San Diego, CA - USS BENFOLD (DDG 65) hosted a large tour group from the Chinese American Military Support (CAMS) non-profit organization Sunday at Naval Station San Diego. Nearly 80 visitors of all ages enjoyed a tour of BENFOLD and joined the crew for a delicious lunch on the ship's Mess Decks and in the Wardroom.

LCDR Arthur Fong, Supply Officer and the group's host and guide, said that the ship presented an outstanding image of the Navy and CAMS members were amazed with both ship and crew. "This is by far the most interesting, enthusiastic, and fun tour the guests and even I had ever experienced," Fong said. "We were absolutely delighted and amazed. The lunch prepared by BENFOLD cooks was one of the best I had ever tasted on board any Navy ship."

The crew completely enjoyed sharing the BENFOLD story. "Showing off the Best Ship in the Navy was energizing and rewarding" said Fire Controlman Second Class (Surface Warfare) Jordan Serulneck. "It's always great to show people our ship," Serulneck said. "Seeing the excitement on their faces makes you appreciate what we do onboard every day."

Lieutenant Dave Nobles, BENFOLD's Weapons Officer and the ship's Command Duty Officer on Sunday, commended the crew for the professional presentation of the Arleigh Burke class destroyer and expressed just how honored he was to be part of the crew and interact with the CAMS group. "Team BENFOLD did an excellent job telling the Navy story and giving our guests a brief glimpse into the life of a United States Navy Sailor!"
