Jacques Naviaux spoke about the Eastern Sierra Wounded Warrior project – which our Club supports. He said that the organization has received a well-earned black eye in terms of how they spend money. However, the Eastern Sierra branch has been doing good work and is currently building a 32-room treatment facility for wounded soldiers.
Jacques also talked about being invited to Camp Pendleton to experience, “A Day in the Life of a Marine.” Despite spending 32 years in the Marine Corps, he accepted the invitation. Jacques stated that he was most impressed by what he described as “the most enthusiastic Marines I have ever seen.” He explained that they go through an “immersion training,” which is a complete Middle East village built in Camp Pendleton.
