Camp Pendleton officials are gathering pieces of history to celebrate the base’s 75th anniversary.
“In January, we’re releasing a series of videos that highlight the different wars (Camp Pendleton Marines) have supported,” said First Lt. Abigail Peterson, a spokesperson for Camp Pendleton. “It will highlight how Camp Pendleton has contributed to those points of history. The collection will include some old footage from different wars, and we’re also going to do some community relations events.”
Peterson said there will be tours of the base offered during the anniversary to those who apply through the base’s public affairs office. Normally, the base doesn’t often offer tours for the public.
Peterson said the dates of the community events and the tours of the base have yet to be determined. For more information and to check on updates for the ceremonies and events, visit www.pendleton.marines.mil. The official anniversary date is Sept. 25, 2017
