I have a sense of satisfaction knowing that I impacted someone's life," said Yeoman 3rd Class Giovanni Vanniel, NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka, military administration petty officer and CSADD member.
Deep bows of appreciation and thanks came from those who stood in line for food but for many of the CSADD volunteers, it was they who felt thankful.
Ship's Serviceman 1st Class Charles Clay, NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka customer service leading petty officer and CSADD volunteer, said he has been volunteering for 14 years but this was his first time feeding the homeless and it felt amazing.
Baerga was not the only CSADD volunteer Sailor who walked away with a better understanding of herself and her neighbors in need.
I have always been the type to help others no matter what their story is," said QM2 Novelyn Thomas, who is a CSADD
advocate and working in NAVSUP FLC Yokosuka's Operations Department.
I look forward to the continued growth of CSADD and look forward to seeing how each of you contributes to our Navy's team success.
San Diego Sailors are glad that CSADD has its own page on one of the world's major networking channels, Facebook.
CSADD sounds like a wonderful program and it's much needed.
CSADD also has regional and command chapters that perform the same task as the Facebook page.
CSADD chapters have experienced impressive success because the programs are led and managed by deckplate Sailors who are uniquely able to present information in a way which appeals to their peers.
Information about how to begin a CSADD chapter is available on the Coalition of Sailors Against Destructive Decisions Facebook page.
