A "Plank owner" is a term used by the US Navy to list a member of the ship's or unit's original crew, and one who served on the ship from its commissioning to its first deployment.

It is the Navy's way of recognizing those who initially were part of the team that puts a new unit or ship into service.

It is the concept that these Sailors are like the Planks of a Ship's Deck - they form the keel or foundation of the vessel and are present from the very beginning.

Chief Santos' favorite bread were the ones found at Dainty and Star Café that to this day remains his favorites , They are the cinnamon rolls and hard as a rock pan de Vienna stored in a bamboo woven Igorot basket, and
covered with old style sack of rice & tightly girdled around to keep the bread warm until sold out from 1-4 in the afternoon.
