Team 2/5 RSM Update

Team 2/5 RSM at Relay for Life 2013

Sending a Team 2/5 RSM Happy New Year to our adopted Marines of the 2/5, their families, and the many organizations, residents and volunteers in and around Rancho Santa Margarita we call Friends of the 2/5.

We’re excited about 2014 and what’s coming around.  Homecoming will be here before we know it.  We’ll have some activities and volunteer opportunities before then, and we’re looking forward to working again with so many great organizations in RSM on opportunities to bring our adopted Marines and our residents and businesses together, like Relay for Life and Patriot Day, that worked so well in 2013. 

We’re also looking for other ways to further Team 2/5 RSM’s mission – to partner with the City of Rancho Santa Margarita and RSM residents, businesses and organizations to provide a meaningful and sustainable level of support for our adopted Marines of the 2/5 and their families. 

We had the great pleasure of meeting yesterday with Bruce Hunt and Gayle Wood of the Mission Viejo Marines & Sailors Adoption Committee, who reached out to us to lend a helping hand and offer guidance.  Bruce and Gayle, thank you.  If we can accomplish for the 2/5 a small fraction of what Mission Viejo has done for the Headquarters Battalion of the 1st Marines, we will have done the 2/5 and our City proud. 

Retreat Hell!

Any and all support for 2/5 Marines and any other Marines at Camp Pendleton is a worthy cause! There is a local group located at Plano Storage in RSM that collects your old plates, glasses, flatware and cooking utensils for incoming Marine recruits. It is not unusual for the Marine recruits to arrive at Camp Pendleton with little or no money. They are at the bottom end of the pay-scale which is far below the poverty line in California. I personally want to thank people that help our Marines!
