USS Monterey reciprocates Maltese hospitality

In keeping with the U.S. Navy’s approach to being ambassadors in all areas of the world, 23 volunteers from the USS Monterey lent a helping hand at Dar tal-Providenza in Siggiewi. The volunteers and ship’s chaplain met with Fr  Martin Micallef, Director of the Home, and some of the residents. 

The crew members carried out general maintenance and cleaning in the laundry, kitchen, the seamstress’ premises and the chapel area.  Stefan Galea, one of our residents hugged the naval volunteers to express his delight and appreciation for their work.

The USS Monterey (CG 61) returned to Malta’s historic Grand Harbour on Dec. 16 to allow the crew to experience the rich culture and history of Malta.
