Best Xmas décor … A Mambulaoan who works as civilian personnel at the US Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan, won the “Best Holiday Decoration” award yesterday. Retired US Navy serviceman Arnel P Hernandez (JPHS Batch 73) was recognized for coming up with the “best decorated balcony” for tower apartments inside the US Naval facility. This has been Hernandez’s second year to have won such an award.
