Halsey Sailors Give Charitably
By: Lt. j.g. Kendra Crabbe
SAN DIEGO – The crew of USS Halsey (DDG 97) contributed more than $11,000 to the Office of Personnel Management's Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) this holiday season.

The CFC is an annual opportunity for Sailors to make donations toward various charities and non-profit organizations, to promote philanthropy and to enable federal employees to help improve the quality of life for others.

“This is just another way we can serve people,” said Gas Turbine Systems Technician First Class (SW) Abou Kamara.

Kamara and Sonar Technician First Class (SW) James Holas organized the ship’s CFC program which resulted in 25 Halsey Sailors receiving awards for their charitable donations.

“Our nation has a heritage of charitable activity. It is not mandated or even required, we just do it. I am proud to stand beside them,” said Cmdr. Robert Beauchamp, Halsey’s Commanding Officer.

USS Halsey is an Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer homeported in San Diego, California. For more information, please refer to the ship’s website www.halsey.navy.mil. More information about the Combined Federal Campaign is available at http://www.opm.gov/CFC/.
