    LIMA, Peru (NNS) -- Twenty-one Sailors from USS Mitscher (DDG 57) participated in a community relations project at the Virgen de Fatima Church during a port visit in Callao, Peru July 5.

    The Sailors, in conjunction with personnel from USS Pearl Harbor (LSD 52) and Destroyer Squadron 40, distributed Project Handclasp materials consisting of more than 14,000 servings of high-energy vitamin-enriched food, medical supplies, personal hygiene products and toys.

    “After three months of coordinating and participating in numerous COMREL (community relations) events throughout South America, I believe that this community will benefit greatly from this project and [are] very deserving,” said Ensign Christopher Reintjes, USS Mitscher’s community relations coordinator.
