1/1 MARINES CAR WASH - 18 JULY 2009
Just days before the return of 1/1 (1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division) from their deployment with the 13th MEU (Marine Expeditionary Unit) Marines of the RBE (Remain Behind Element) returned to Newport Beach for another successful car wash, raising funds to make the battalion's 2009 Birthday Ball more affordable for young Marines & Sailors.  

Gunnery Sergeant Daniel Coleman of 1/1 was SNCO in charge, with additional support from 1st Marine Regiment and from Corporal Megan Angel and the Orange County Recruiting office.

Nicholson's Pipes and Drums, frequently called "1/1's own" provided stirring music throughout the day.

A's Market, near the site, kindly donated coffee and breakfast sandwiches for approximately seventy 1/1 Marines and Sailors during set up.

During the day of perfect weather the citizens of Newport Beach again turned out in abundance for car washes and to also generously purchase food and various Marine Corps memorabilia, assuring yet another successful fund raiser for the community's adopted battalion.
