Friends of the 1st CEB (1st Combat Engineer Battalion USMC) and Adoption Committee from the City of Cerritos presented a Special Recognition Shadow Box to Cerritos Sheriff's Station on behalf of their members. The Sheriff's Station has been supporting the Marines and Sailors of the 1st CEB over the past four years with donations of socks for the Deployment Bags sent overseas to both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as providing station tours for the Meritorious Marine of the Month program and other forms of support.

Pictured are Mickey Christiason, Friends of the 1st CEB member and Station Volunteeer; Sgt Mark Patrick; Lt Allen Castellano; Dorothy Owen, Past President; Chuck Sooter, Founding President; and Ray Lovell, who made the special shadow box.
