About 70 California National Guard soldiers finished a yearlong tour in Iraq Thursday, landing in Coronado.
When Sgt. Sahren Salgado stepped off the plane at North Island Naval Air Station, she was wrapped in a hug from her 16-year-old son Mikee. This age-old scene of military homecoming has often been repeated in San Diego during the last decade of war. But the return of the 640th Aviation Support Battalion -- the last aviation support battalion left in Iraq -- also brought the U.S.…Continue

A few dozen U.S.Navy SEALs, led by CIA operatives, took down Osama bin Laden and a former member of the elite military club that trains in Coronado claims to have all the details in his new book.
If you ask the U.S. Special Operations Command, the book and its claims are all a lie.
Chuck Pfarrer claims to reveal the "real" version of the raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in "SEAL Target Geronimo."

It may be hard to believe, but the sad, strange case of Rebecca Zahau just got sadder and stranger.
Four months after her body was found hanging from the balcony of boyfriend Jonah Shacknai’s mansion in Coronado — a death that was ruled a suicide by the county Medical Examiner’s Office — Zahau was once again on display. This made-for-the-tabloids circus had pitched its tent on the “Dr. Phil” show Monday, and we were all invited in to gawk.
Like so many things…Continue

It was a powerful experience to witness this basketball event attended by our veterans, those actively serving, and the President of the United States.
Many thanks to…
