NEWPORT BEACH CAR WASH 1/1 MARINES-2009
Approximately one month 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.  The next 1/1 car wash in Newport Beach will be held on 18 July at the same location on Pacific Coast Highway, just south of the Newport Boulevard overpass.

Gunnery Sergeant Holmes of 1/1 was SNCO in charge, with  additional support from HQ 1st Marine Regiment who provided up-armored Humvees, and Staff Sergeant Christopher Colson and Sgt Sergio Pineda from San Diego who brought one of their recruiting Humvees in a huge 18 wheeler, both bright red with recently updated USMC graphics, for display.

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

Although weather was marginal with a slight drizzle all day, 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.
