Military Affairs Team Needs Volunteers
The Costa Mesa Military Affairs Team is looking for volunteers to help formulate and carry out plans to help Costa Mesa veterans.
The primary focus initially will be our adopted Marine battalion, the 1/5 Marines, presently stationed at Camp Pendleton and scheduled to be deployed again to the Middle East later this fall. They are commanded by Lt. Col. Terry Johnson, shown here at a recent City Council meeting.
NEED MORE FOLKS...
This new effort, launched a couple months ago by former planning commissioner Jim Fitzpatrick and councilwoman Wendy Leece, has been hampered by lack of interest by members of the public. As a result, it's been difficult to sharpen the focus of this effort.
NEXT MEETING ON WEDNESDAY
If you're interested in providing support to "our" Marines and other Costa Mesa Veterans, please attend the next meeting of the Military Affairs Team on Wednesday, June 27, 2012, in Conference Room 1A at 5:30 at City Hall. The flier for the meeting follows. Click on the image to enlarge it.
