More than 2,500 children and families visited the Navy Exchange for MWR Community Recreation’s Trunk-or-Treat event aboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville Oct. 30. Guests traveled through the parking lot stopping by the special-themed vehicle trunks that had candy and treats available.

“My kids had a great time at the Trunk-or-Treat,” said AO3 Sydney Sattelberg with Fleet Readiness Command Southeast. “I am so thankful that the MWR provided a safe place for my children to trick-or-treat. Everyone put a lot of hard work and creativity into their decorations.”

Themes of the decorated vehicles varied from scary with headstones to harvest themed with pumpkins and hay. Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) Jacksonville used a superhero theme for their entry. 

“We also had the U.S. Navy goat and I wore a goat mask for four hours,” said Work and Family Life Counselor Ken Moreland. “We have a lot of retired chief petty officers working at FFSC, so we wanted to represent them in our display.”

The first place trophy was awarded to Naval Munitions Command Atlantic Detachment Jacksonville, with the NAS Jacksonville Commissary in second place, and Naval Hospital Jacksonville in third place.
