My husband and I are new to the Navy. We have just passed his one year anniversary and we have experienced many new challenges as a new Navy family over the last year so your Christmas party was truly a gift. We were both surprised and so incredibly grateful for all that you did for our family for Christmas. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to play at Funbelievable, for the pizza party, crafts and even a visit from Santa! We all had a wonderful time. We were excited and very appreciative of all of that, but then to receive so many toys for our daughters was such a great treat! Wow.

You really hit it out of the park with the Holiday Party! My kids absolutely LOVED it.  Arty was so amazed and excited about Santa’s appearance after the movie.  I really don’t think anything could have been better. We had a fabulous time. Thanks so much to you and your family.  You guys rock!

Also, please pass on my thanks to the folks from Laguna Niguel.  We are very thankful for their gifts but also for their presence.  I will never forget the kindness and generosity of this wonderful group of people.

Tom, Brud, and Bev,

Thanks to you all for a spectacular tournament. I am sure it will only grow over the years and get better and better. I have been around a lot of tournments and this was certainly one of the best. It was great for some of the younger Sailors to get to see firsthand what you al are doing. Sometimes, it doesn’t quite come through just trying to explain it. The crew is definitely excited to be part of the Laguna Niguel family. Likewise, you are all part of the STOCKDALE family now, so when we are in port and the schedule permits, you are all always welcome.

Thanks again and look forward to the next time we see you all !

Sean Grunwell - Commanding Officer
