The Heritage of San Clemente Foundation hosted a star-studded Veterans Day ceremony at Park Semper Fi on Nov. 4, a week before the official day on Nov. 11, due to scheduling conflicts.
During the ceremony, a plaque was dedicated to the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines (2/4) honoring their service. The 2/4 is the city’s adopted Marine unit. Col. Stewart Navarre (Ret.), the former commanding officer of the 5th Marine Regiment, and Lt. Col. Warren Cook, the current commanding officer of the 2/4, spoke during the event, as well as the venerable Gen. J.K. Davis, a former assistant commandant of the Marine Corps who is now a San Clemente resident.
