Navy Petty Officer 1st Class David A. Klenda, a 1998 graduate of Rifle High School, along with Seabees assigned to Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 11, donated 10 large boxes of food items to the Seabee Pantry at Naval Construction Battalion Center (NCBC) Gulfport, Miss. Klenda's battalion had accumulated about 500 pounds of donations including items such as canned foods, boxes of cereal, condiments, snack foods and many other food items. The Seabee Pantry provides help to military members and their dependents to include active duty, reservists, and retirees. NMCB-11 is currently in the midst of a homeport cycle following an eight-month deployment to Afghanistan and is preparing for its next deployment, set to begin near the end of the summer next year. Klenda joined the Navy in June 1998. For more news from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 11, visit www.navy.mil/local/nmcb11.
