SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

3:45 p.m. Community members plan to gather in Downtown San Clemente for a march honoring the fallen Camp Pendleton Marines who died in last week’s terrorist bombings at the Kabul airport in Afghanistan. Participants are encouraged to bring flags, bells, posters and banners, as the community shows Camp Pendleton its love for Marines and Corpsmen. At 4:15 p.m., participants will march solemnly to the Semper Fi Memorial at the Pier Bowl area for a moment of silence. At approximately 4:30 p.m., there will be a reading of the names of the fallen heroes who were brave servicemen and servicewomen. Marchers are expected to gather at the top of Avenida Del Mar (near the El Camino Real intersection).
