Host families for Marines sought

Costa Mesa is looking for families to share Christmas Day with two Marines and their families.

The Marines, from the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, which the city has adopted, will participate in the host family's traditions, which could include opening gifts and enjoying a home-cooked meal, according to a news release.

To volunteer to host a Marine family, contact city management analyst Dan Baker at (714) 754-5156 or
