Miss California visits Navy ship

Garden Grove’s Bree Morse, outgoing Miss California, recently was special guest of the Navy ship USS Essex (LHD-2) for presentation of performance awards to four crewmembers onboard the San Diego based amphibious assault ship.

Morse received a commemorative ship’s coin from Commanding Officer, Captain Brian J. Quin, U. S. Navy. The popular pageant winner was also treated to a tour of the huge ship, guided by Essex’s Senior Chief Petty Officer Denise Murray and Newport Beach Navy Leaguer Board Officers Chris Chocek and Mark Miller.

Morse presented the special Navy League awards and checks to CS1 Latoya Farrish, HM2 Scott Musolf, AO3 PurnelNkwocha and ABHAN Tyrese Jamison and spent much time talking with many other crew members, posing with them in photos, and signing autographs.
