A Surprise Holiday Visitor for NANA Services, LLC
Obama visits Marines and Crew at Kaneohe Bay
Anchorage, AK January 2, 2009
Santa wasn’t the only visitor to NANA Services Kaneohe Bay (K-Bay), Hawaii operations this holiday season. The award-winning U.S. Marine Corps mess hall team and NANA Services’ team was treated to a surprise visit by President-Elect Barack Obama as he dined with troops at the USMC Base at K-Bay on Christmas Day.
The NANA Services team prepared an outstanding Christmas Day dinner of turkey and ham for both Mr. Obama and the Marines stationed at K-Bay.
“Mr. Obama stayed for more than an hour and talked to every Marine who was having dinner here,” said Ricky Lui, Project Manager for NANA Services. “Our whole team was wearing Santa hats and we had the chance to take pictures and a talk with him. It was great!”
NANA Services, a division of Akmaaq, has a contract at the base to provide food preparation, food delivery, mess attendant services, cashiering, and housekeeping.
But the visit from the President-Elect wasn’t the only honor for NANA Services. For the past two years, the team at K-Bay has been the recipient of the prestigious Marine Corps Hill Memorial Award and recognized Best Military/Contractor Garrison Mess Hall for their exceptional teamwork, combined commitment, and food service excellence in the services they provide to the Marine Corps Base at K-Bay.
