SAN DIEGO, CA. – SAN DIEGO, CA. – The crew of the guided missile destroyer USS PAUL HAMILTON (DDG 60) celebrated the re-opening of the ship’s galley and mess decks January 22, 2018 following 19 months of repair, maintenance and upgrades as part of the ship’s Extended Dry-docking Selected Restricted Availability (EDSRA) period.
Additions to the galley included a nutritional program and “Warriors Way” theme for the mess decks. It took hard work and long hours from the ship’s force to reopen the galley.
“S-2, E-Division and A-Gang worked many hours grooming the reefers, freezers and ensuring all galley equipment was properly installed and functional,” said CS1 Wade.
Along with several repairs to major galley equipment, the deck was re-surfaced in the galley, mess decks and a new hot counter top was installed.
According to LT Courtney, PAUL HAMILTON’S Supply Officer, the 19 months of EDSRA were long but successful due to all the support from contractors and ship’s force. “It took a lot of coordination, but we couldn’t have done it without all of us working together,” said LT Courtney. WELL DONE, Phantom Warriors!
