In 2008, the City Council adopted the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment stationed at Camp Pendleton to provide support to the Marines and their families.
City staff generally assists in disseminating information to and encouraging support by the community, promoting programs and other planned activities, and coordinating use of City facilities for events.
Efforts to directly support the 1/5 and its fundraising efforts have included a gown drive for military wives in preparation of the annual military ball, a Halloween candy drive, numerous care package collections, and a car wash at City Hall.
