One of the ways that we can thank and honor our military heroes is to take care of their loved ones. The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) is doing so by providing compassionate care to those grieving the death of a loved one serving in our armed forces.
Recently, San Diego Employees Barbara Pellegrino, Brandon Cruz, and Rudy Cervantes had the opportunity to help support these efforts by sharing their talents for hospitality with a community that we serve.
On September 14, loved ones of those who have lost their lives in service to our country gathered together at Del Mar Beach in San Diego to take part in the Camp Pendleton Family Reunion. A month prior to the event, Barbara began working to supply the food, drinks, and supplies needed, and she was there throughout the day to lend a hand. Brandon picked up his guitar, and Rudy warmed up his horn to provide music for the day. Set after set, they played to honor the heroes who are no longer with us and the loved ones who keep their memory and sacrifice alive.
