The Santa Barbara Navy League presented a signed photograph of the USS California (SSN 781) to Eli Parker of Fess Parker Winery at its 13th Annual Release Day BBQ on May 4.

The Commanding Officer, Cmdr. Dana Nelson, USN, his executive officer, Lt. Cdmr. Orville Cave, USN, and the chief of the boat, STSCM(SS) Charles Abrams, USN, signed the picture of the U.S. Navy’s newest Virginia class, nuclear-powered submarine.

The picture was given to thank Fess Parker Winery for its generous donation to the USS California (SSN 781) commissioning reception last October.

Parker said he appreciated the acknowledgement and hoped everyone enjoyed the wine.

The Santa Barbara Council of the Navy League is dedicated to the support of the U.S. Navy service members and other services, including adoption of 13 units from all sections of the armed forces and the crews aboard the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN76), the USS Stockdale (DDG-106) and the USS California (SSN 781).

— Patricia Westberg is president of the Santa Barbara Navy League.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
