A restaurant in San Clemente, California hosted over 100 Camp Pendleton Marines for Thanksgiving, with the community supporting the event through donations and sponsored meals.
The Marines received gift bags and raffle prizes, and the event was a success thanks to the support of the community.
“One (Marine) mom just called in right now and FaceTimed us, thanking us,” said owner Chris Aitken. (Trending: US Troops Deliver Devastating Blow to Biden)
“For most of these Marines, it’s their first Thanksgiving away from home, so it’s really a privilege to be able to do this.”
“Thank you to those of you who donated to help us treat 180 young Marines to an amazing Thanksgiving!! Thank you Capo Ford , Julie Brooks Mains Law Firm, Sea View Pediatrics and all of you who donated!!” co-owner Maureen Aitken wrote.
