USS Milius
“Others Before Myself”
USS MILIUS Sailors Participate in Local Community Relations Project
By LTJG David Gardner
San Diego - On Tuesday, fourteen Sailors from the guided missile destroyer, USS MILIUS (DDG 69), volunteered to assist their local Habit for Humanity chapter in restoring a recently donated property.

The property, which was willed to Habit for Humanity, received several cosmetic and landscape improvements from MILIUS Sailors. The MILIUS team worked from 0800 to 1500 making improvements to the property.

The event is part of a three week long project to fully restore the property and prepare it for sale. Habitat for Humanity plans to sell the San Diego property and use the proceeds to purchase other homes for low income families.

Aegis Fire Controllman Second Class Mark Steyer was one of the fourteen volunteers. He said the experience “was a great chance to show the public that the Navy supports and cares about the community.”

USS MILIUS is currently in BAE shipyards, receiving multiple upgrades and modifications, during an Extended Drydock Selected Restricted Availability.

Petty Officer Steyer added, “I am grateful for the opportunity to serve such a cause, and I hope we can continue our partnership with Habitat for Humanity.”

The crew plans to capitalize on the in-port period to complete several community involvement projects.
