SAN CLEMENTE...In 1996, the San Clemente City Council adopted a Resolution supporting the “America Supporting Americans” (ASA) Adoption Program and adopting the United State Marine Corps 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines. The San Clemente Chamber of Commerce and the VFW Post 7142 concurrently pledged their support with the City of San Clemente. The Resolution also urged all businesses, service clubs, schools, and citizens to assist these organization in supporting our men and women in the armed services.

The dedicated groups in San Clemente participate in activities that support the morale of troops serving in military units - both at home and overseas - while also providing support to their family members. The activities organized by various groups are often times joint activities and involve opportunities for citizen involvement.

The City hosted a welcome home parade for their adopted Marine Unit. One thousand Marines marching on foot down Del Mar led by the 1st Division Marine Band and several classic cars which carried 2/4 Association veterans and members, local dignitaries, and military officials. The procession concluded at the Marine Monument at Park Semper Fi where the 2/4 were saluted at a ceremony.

The year-round morale building and friendly bonding activities, like today’s parade, provides much needed support to our neighboring military and allow our community the opportunity to say “thank you” to our service men and women for their sacrifice to our great nation in a very personal and meaningful way.
