Honoring our Vets


Palomar has hosted many veterans over the years.  I’ve had the privilege meeting quite a number of vets that served our country going back to WWII.  One day at the post office, I met Matt and Amanda.  Many of you remember them when they lived here while Matt was stationed at Pendleton.

Their photo popped up on my Facebook this morning from 4 years ago so I thought I’d share. Matt served in Afghanistan and we are so thankful he returned to his wife and two young sons. We have fond memories of many adventures out and about on the Mountain,  extra Marines for relaxing weekend barbecues and time ’round the campfire. But, maybe my favorite was having sleepovers for their boys while mom and dad had a night off for the Military Balls.

With respect, honor and gratitude, I say thank you, to the millions of people who have given up time away from friends, family and fun to serve our country.

From atop beautiful Palomar Mountain, we honor our veterans – our heroes and their families.

Bonnie and Don
