Joseph Henry

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Joseph Henry was born in Rochester, Pennsylvania back in 1860 to Joseph and Martha. Can’t tell you about his early education however, in 1878 you could find him at the United States Naval Academy graduating in 1884 as a second lieutenant.

In 1892, he was promoted to first lieutenant and to captain in 1899. By 1903, he was promoted to major. In 1906, he commanded the Marines on Guam. He continued to rise through the ranks reaching the rank of Major General, serving this nation for 40 years. He retired in in 1924, where he served as mayor in Coronado, California. He died in 1942 at 81. To tell you all the posts he had would take a lot more writing so let’s cut to the chase.

What you may not know about Major general Joseph Henry Pendleton is that the Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is named in his honor. Until tomorrow my wish for you is to have a wonderful day, embrace it, love it and live it to its fullest.

Good morning James,

Know of the base but never learned who it was named after.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Another interesting tidbit that I didn't know anything about, as I have never paid much attention to the military.

Well I had no idea that Camp Pendelton was named after him. We drive through all the time when we head north to visit our family in LA. Have had several clients who are stationed there or work at the Commissary!
