Marine Corps recruiters at the San Gabriel Valley Pride event at Pasadena City College on Saturday didn't care whether the young men who lined up to test their strength were gay or straight. The Marines just wanted to see some pull-ups done properly: Place hands about shoulder width apart, palms facing away; pull upward until chin is over the bar and then slowly return to the hanging position. Repeat until the feet feel like concrete blocks and the biceps like rubber bands about to snap.

Once again the Glendale City Council has disappointed me and others in our community by having our American flag lowered to half staff. I would like to remind the City Council that it serves the people in our community not just one group of people. We have gotten the message about the Armenian Genocide, so let's move on now or cause more division in our city. To councilman Frank Quintero, you said at the April 17 council meeting that you served in the U.S. Marine Corps and volunteered to serve in Vietnam and that two of your best friends were killed in battle there, and that they would not mind having our flag lowered.

McGinley of the U.S. Marine Corps, the film, “Warriors . . . In Their Own Words,” gave him the chance to talk about the challenges the troops faced in 2006 in Ramadi, which is in the Al Anbar Province in Iraq. “It was extremely dangerous,” he said, adding that it’s completely the opposite today, as shops are open and people are walking or driving freely.

Deep in the heart of the military base dotted with artillery ranges and helicopter landing pads, an unlikely scene unfolded Saturday. Young parents lounged and looked on as men in camouflage served cotton candy and cups of flavored ice to their children. A magician performed on a nearby stage. Somebody carried off a bicycle won in a raffle. It was a festive scene made possible by a group of former Marines from Newport Beach. In fact, the city in December 2003 "adopted" the 1st Battalion, 1st Marines, and a committee of local military veterans -- including City Manager Homer Bludau, former Mayor Steve Bromberg and Arches restaurateur Dan Marcheano -- has held several events and raised thousands of dollars to help the Marines and their families.
