Students gathered in the library of Chief Brodie Memorial Elementry School to recieve a Christmas gift from Santa Claus, portrayed by Chief Petty Officer Tony Qualls, on Dec. 20. Over a dozen Seabees with the Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 11 presented students at the school with 200 gifts purchased by its officers and chief petty officers, and another 100 gifts provided by the Korean School of Guam and the school itself. "Every child in the school received a gift," said Nancy Diaz, school principal.
