MCAS Miramar United State Marine Corps Air Station
Although both the Navy and Army had established facilities on North Island in 1912, Miramar’s military roots were not planted until 1917, when the Army purchased the Miramar area and created Camp Kearny, named for Gen. Stephen Kearny, whose Army of the West had captured California during the Mexican-American War.
In the 1930's the area was base for military dirigibles. In the early 1940's the first aviation runways were built.
Miramar found new life as a Navy Master Jet Station in the 1950s, but really came into its own during the Vietnam War.
The Navy needed a school to train pilots in dog-fighting and in fleet air defense. In 1969 the Top Gun school was established (and immortalized by the 1985 movie of the same name).
Marine Serve Any Time, Any Where
While many military bases share one or more of Camp Pendleton's training features, none match its broad spectrum. Camp Pendleton has a population of nearly 40,000 Marines and Sailors and provides a variety of services and recreational activities.

What is the statement most frequently uttered by a Redneck before he dies? Hey y’all, watch this!
Why is it so hard for the coroner to I.D. the body? all the DNA is virtually the same...and there are usually no dental records.
