Each of the Marines was from the greater Pasadena area.U.S. Marines and reservists, community leaders, members of the centerâ€™s Citizen Support Group and others took time to reflect on the sacrifices of the 12 Marines who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to their nation:Cpl Carlos Arellanopandura, RosemeadPFC Eric Ayon, Glendale2nd Lt.

It is meant simply to honor those who have died in service to their country,â€ said LtCol Donald Wright during the ceremony. â€œWe honor their sacrifice and remind ourselves of the need to be ready to answer our nationâ€™s call. We also remind those who have fallen that we have not forgotten them and that we will not let them down.â€The Pasadena U.S. Marine Center is at 2699 Paloma St. at the northwest corner of Paloma Street and Sierra Madre Boulevard.Resting near the flagpole and the entrance to the main building, the memorial can be seen easily through the fence that surrounds the center.The 2nd Battalion, 23rd Marine Regiment, also known as the 2/23, is an infantry reserve unit that provides trained personnel to augment and reinforce active-duty units in times of war, disasters and other situations as national security requires. About 30 active-duty and reserve U.S. Marines are on staff daily at the center.The 2/23 also participates in local civic events and works in cooperation with the city of Pasadena during emergencies and natural disasters.During monthly training drills there are more than 200 U.S. Marines at the center.Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard and the Pasadena City Council unanimously voted to adopt the 2/23 on Nov. 25, 2013, formally recognizing the relationship between the city of Pasadena and the Pasadena U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Center, which is on city-owned land.For more information call (626) 398-0295.

After a break on Monday and early Tuesday, another storm is likely Tuesday evening through Thursday, the National Weather Service said.Julie Malingowski, an NWS meteorologist, said the weather outlook for the next couple of weeks indicates above-normal precipitation. Looking toward the next couple of months, the odds are also in favor of above-average precipitation, Malingowski told the Los Angeles Times.A NWS forecast discussion early Friday said rain totals are expected to be between a half to an inch in the valleys, and a half to 1.5 inches in the foothills and mountains, with possibly localized higher amounts of rain when thunderstorms occur.The NWS warned that rain falling on roadways can mix with oil buildup and create extra slippery conditions for motorists, especially at the onset of rain. Water could also pond on the roadways and create a heightened risk of vehicles hydroplaning while traveling at highway speeds.Saturday should be rainy, with an 80 percent chance as NWS predicts. Rain would be mainly after 5 p.m. Highs will be near 60, with a southeast wind at around five miles per hour.Saturday night should see rain before 11 p.m., followed by showers and possibly a thunderstorm. An east southeast wind prevails at around five mph. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent.Sunday should have a 50 percent chance of showers, and should be mostly cloudy, with a high near 60, and a calm wind at five mph becoming southwest in the afternoon. Sunday night should be partly cloudy, with a low around 43.Monday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 65. Monday night should be partly cloudy, with a low around 47.Tuesday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 67.
