Commandant sets Pendleton tour

Like a general assessing battle damage, the commandant of the Marine Corps is set this afternoon to tour Camp Pendleton to evaluate the fight against the Horno fire and the efforts to help military and civilian evacuees.

Gen. James Conway also wants to determine the extent of the disruption to the training of the 5th Marine Regiment, set to deploy soon to Iraq.

The 5th regiment found temporary housing for 800 evacuees and their pets. Among them: seven pregnant women who were provided medical care.
