Mess Night

Celebrating 20 years of support to the 1/1 Marines and their families.

Camp Pendleton Turkey Drop

Such a wonderful annual tradition to give thanks to those to serve, during the Holidays. Not all of our Marines will get to see their families during the holidays, but hopefully they all know that we are here for them.

We are grateful for our Marines and our supporters. Thank you.

USMC Birthday & Veteran's Day

Our 1/1 Marines doing their best to celebrate the birth of the Corps during a global pandemic. We hope the “motivation cakes” and “Sports Day” we sponsored allowed the Marines time to enjoy some camaraderie at this special time of year. As you all probably remember, celebrating the birth of the Corps is a sacred tradition, often celebrated at large events with hundreds – and sometimes thousands – in attendance. It’s really great that we were able to make this happen, in lieu of their usual USMC Birthday Ball.
