Armed Forces Day – Operation Appreciation
On Armed Forces Day, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce will present the Annual Operation Appreciation event. Operation Appreciation is an opportunity for businesses, organizations and citizens to honor and thank active-duty military and their families stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Joseph H. Pendleton, one of the largest military bases in the United States. Operation Appreciation brings the community together for a day-long celebration of music, food and family fun.
All active–duty military and their military dependents (with valid military id) are treated to a tasty complimentary lunch, live entertainment, and a children’s area with a Fun Zone, games, attractions, crafts and face painting. This event is free to the public with Fun Zone tickets and food available for purchase.
