2/5 MARINES ADOPTION CEREMONY
Rancho Santa Margarita welcomed the 2/5 Marines (2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division) at a reception and formal adoption ceremony January 10, 2007, becoming the latest community in Orange County to adopt a Marine unit from Camp Pendleton.

The citizens of Rancho Santa Margarita will support the Marines & Sailors of 2/5, and their families, while home based at Camp Pendleton and while the unit is deployed in operations around the world.  

This album includes images of the reception beginning with the preparation phase, arrival  of first guests, informal introductions and visiting, and the formal program concluding with the cake cutting by the Mayor of Rancho Santa Margarita and Commanding Officer of 2/5.

The formal part of the program began with the Invocation by the Battalion Chaplain,  Marching on of the Colors, the National Anthem, and comments by Mayor Tony Beall and the Commanding Officer of 2/5, Lt. Colonel Craig Kozeniesky, USMC.  Music was provided by a section of the U.S. Marine Corps Band from The Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego.
