General Pendleton Cannon Refurbishment Project 

The cannon refurbishment project is complete!

Thanks to the diligent efforts of CPHS Board Member, Mike Lewis, for initiating and coordinating this project with Ordnance Maintenance Company, 1st Marine Logistics Group at Camp Pendleton.

There’s a great video of Corporal Shawn O’Kane, USMC on the CPHS Facebook page (link below) who led the refurbishing efforts of General Pendleton’s cannon which was located in Cannon Court, Santa Margarita Ranch House aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.  Check out the video!
