Sailors volunteer at Aikwangwon during exercise break

Rear Adm. Bill McQuilkin, commander of Naval Forces Korea, praises Kim Im-soon, founder of the Aikwangwon orphanage during the Korean War, for her 60 years of service during a community service event attended by 117 active-duty and reserve sailors. The sailors used part of their break time during exercise Ulchi Freedom Guardian 2012 to volunteer at the facility by doing general maintenance, landscaping and cooking the 325 residents, staff and teachers hamburgers and hotdogs. Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74, detachment Chinhae, built and installed new bathroom doors and partitions as well as spackled cracked walls.
