Who doesn’t love OLD GLORY, America’s flag ?? The red stripes represent hardiness and valor while the white stripes represent purity and innocence. The blue in our flag represents vigilance, perseverance and justice. If you need a flag, look no further - we’ve got them !! These flags are made in the USA by Annin Flagmakers, in business since 1847. Annin made the flag that draped Abraham Lincoln’s casket, the flag raised on Iwo Jima and the US flags sent to the moon. The flags are 5’x8’and one can be yours for a suggested donation of $40. What better way to show your love for and pride in America than by flying your flag every day of the year and helping members of the military at the same time !!!! 100% of the proceeds directly benefit our 13th MEU families. Please contact us at 714-637-5575 if you are interested in owning one of these flags.

EASTER BASKET AND GIFT CARD DRIVE
Easter is quickly approaching and that means it's time for our Easter Basket Drive !! We are in need of wrapped baskets for our precious little ones and $20 gift cards for the teenagers. In addition, various gift cards are needed which will be used as raffle prizes. We will be transporting the baskets down to Camp Pendleton which is why we are asking for wrapped baskets. If you don't have time to shop, monetary donations are welcome - a committee member will do the shopping for you. In past years we've always gotten such a variety of baskets, there's really nothing cuter than watching the kids trying to pick out the perfect basket !!!
