Our Sand Dollar Shop is the primary source of charitable funds of NOSC San Diego. Every purchase made gives back to children, hospitals, veterans, and many other military causes in the community. We hope every item you take home reminds you that you helped your neighbor that day. From us, for them - thank you!
Fair Winds and Following Seas - It seems it's always that time of year for Farewell, Change of Command, and Retirement Gifts!
