The day-long event will include a tour of the U.S. Navy LCAC ACU 5 hovercraft facility followed by lunch at Iron Mikes in the Pacific View Club on base. After lunch, the group will tour the Infantry Immersion Training Facility, where Marines are trained in an intense lifelike Afghanistan Village in urban engagement techniques. USMC Col. (ret.) Jim Williams and USMC Lt. Col. (ret.) Dave Weir will be the on-base hosts. The tour bus will depart from the Los Rios Park lot promptly at 8:30 a.m. and is expected to arrive back in San Juan Capistrano around 5 p.m.
