The Annual 3/1 Marines Christmas Party. The 3/1 is deployed through April in Okinawa. Santa gave away presents to the kids. The HBFA cooked hotdogs and served lunch.

Still proud that our Members drove down to Camp Pendleton during the Christmas Holidays to give of their time.
Want to send your support to a soldier in harm's way, but have no idea of what to send, who to send it to, or how to send it? Any Soldier Inc. started in August 2003 as a simple family effort to help the soldiers in one Army unit, thus our name. However, due to overwhelming requests, on 1 January 2004 the Any Soldier effort was expanded to include any member, of any of the Armed Services, in harms way.
The sacrifice of hundreds of California firefighters is remembered on the brushed limestone walls of the California Firefighters Memorial at the State Capitol in Sacramento. This beautiful tribute, embodying over 10 years of work by CPF, depicts both the heroism of the profession and the anguish felt when a firefighter falls in the line of duty.
