2nd Battalion 5th Marine Regiment

The 2nd Battalion 5th Marines (2/5) was adopted on January 10, 2007.  The mission of this adoption is to support the marines and their families on an on-going basis, both when the unit is at Camp Pendleton and when it is deployed.  The goal is to encourage mutually-beneficial interaction between the community and the marines and their families in order to render such support and also to create strong and lasting ties between the unit, residents and the City.

The Community Services Department works closely with the Deployment Readiness Coordinator year-round to coordinate volunteer assistance for events such as the City's Patriot Day Commemoration, the Battalion Holiday Party, barracks projects, homecomings, and other events and programs.
