    NAF EL CENTRO – The bell from a historic U.S. Navy ship has found a new home after a temporary stay in the Imperial Valley.

    On Dec. 7, after trading email correspondence regarding a nearby treasure, the Public Affairs Office for Naval Air Facility El Centro received an amazing surprise from Imperial Valley resident Dana Mace. It was an 80-pound bell from a U.S. Navy destroyer, the USS Dunlap (DD-384), which saw action in the Pacific during World War II.
