Laguna Beach resident and U.S. Marine Corps Ret. Col. Charles Quilter told the Orange County Register he was looking forward to Obama's visit:
"It's time for the commander-in-chief to welcome home the troops ordered overseas and say 'Thank you.' For the commander-in-chief to recognize this service is a great honor."
According to the OC Register, President Obama is the sixth U.S. president to visit Camp Pendleton. The other commanders-in-chief who made the trip were Franklin Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush.
