To all the organizations and individuals who donated gowns and dresses – Thank you!

Republican Women, Las Candalistas, Elks Clubs and many private individuals made this year’s dress collections for Miramar a great success. Thank you! We delivered two pickup truck loads of dresses, shoes, clutches and accessories – including 3 gorgeous wedding gowns that were boxed and preserved by their original owners.

The Beauty Battalion is organized by Elizabeth Kingston. From 2008-2012 she took teams of Beauty and Spa professionals to Guantanamo Bay Naval Station to set up a Retail and Spa center. During that time she also brought letters to the troops from civilians as well as thousands of dollars of donated goods from various Southern California businesses. In the years after the GTMO trips she worked to gather donated dresses and gowns for MCAS Miramar's Marine Ball in San Diego every year and was a regular attendee on the flight line at the fabulous Miramar Airshow. Having moved to Coeur d'Alene Idaho in 2019, she is now looking for similar opportunities to support the troops in Northern Idaho and Eastern Washington.
