SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The 11th Marines artillery regiment will be hosting its 3rd annual benefit golf tournament on Sept. 20 at the Arrowood Golf Course in Oceanside. The Cannon Blast will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m., followed by the golf tournament. All proceeds will go to building the 11th Marines Ceremonial Garden at Camp Las Pulgas.
The new memorial site at Camp Pendleton will honor Marines and Sailors in the 11th Marines regiment, those who have fallen and those actively serving. According to the press release, the ceremonial garden will serve as “a tranquil place for our Marines and Sailors, and their loved ones and friends, to gather, remember, and honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.” The new memorial will also serve as a venue for “promotions, award ceremonies, and re-enlistments.”
The benefit golf tournament is open to all those who wish to register in advance. RSVP for the event online at 11thmcg.com/golf-registration.
