Supporting Military Personnel at Camp Pendleton Day

Ruba Zumut, BergerABAM vice president, gives presentation about the firm.

On Thursday, 15 June, the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) San Diego and Orange County Posts hosted the 12th Annual Camp Pendleton Day at the Pacific Views Event Center. Camp Pendleton Day serves as an educational and networking event attended by members of the military, members of local government, professionals in the private industry, and other interested parties. BergerABAM was a Gold Sponsor and exhibitor at the event.

The fundraising event included several presentations that touched on a myriad of topics, including recent affairs at Camp Pendleton; present challenges, solutions, and opportunities within the energy, water, capital improvements, and environmental programs of the Navy and Marine Corps; the wall and border security; and other upcoming projects and programs. Additionally, with the theme of “Restoring American Power,” this year’s Camp Pendleton Day included a mentorship program called Transitioning: Military to Career (TMTC). The TMTC program provides guidance and networking opportunities for transitioning service members and recent veterans who are seeking employment.

All proceeds from the event went toward two nonprofit organizations: Challenged Athletes Foundation’s (CAF) Operation Rebound and Project Healing Waters. CAF’s Operation Rebound provides funding for workout equipment, physical training, and competition expenses for physically disabled American military personnel, veterans, and first responders. The other organization, Project Healing Waters, is a fly fishing program that aims to provide therapeutic outdoor recreation for disabled active military service personnel.
