In recognition of the service and sacrifices of our Marines and Sailors, "The Friends of the 11th Marines" are leading a campaign to raise money to fund the 11th Marines Ceremonial Garden.
In the fall of 2015, the Commanding General of the 1st Marine Division asked the Commanding Officer of 11th Marines why they did not have a memorial site at Las Pulgas to recognize the regiment’s fallen Marines and Sailors. In response to the CG’s challenge, and with some guidance from the Regimental Commander, a group of retired Marines from 11th Marines began the process to establish such a site.
The Veterans of 11th Marines have partnered with the energetic patriots of the Rotary Clubs of San Juan Capistrano and Camp Pendleton. As a federally registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization, the Rotary Club has extensive experience supporting Marines and Sailors. Combined, we have many decades of experience and an extensive network to tell our story and to find donors who want to help us achieve our goal.
