3rd Edition TimelineEdit
Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton was the major West Coast base of the United States Marine Corps and served as its prime amphibious training base. It was located in Southern California between the cities of Oceanside and San Clemente. It is named after Marine General Joseph Henry Pendleton, who long advocated setting up a West Coast training base for the Marine Corps.
Camp Pendleton was struck by an air burst from one of the nukes launched by the Chinese, as a result the camp is now a radioactive ruin. At the time of the attack most of the 1st Marine Division was deployed to Afghanistan or to Mexico to protect United States interests there.
