The reality TV couple spent Thursday at Camp Pendleton, the largest Marine Corps base on the West Coast, in San Diego County.
“We went to visit Camp Pendleton to see the Marines. They’re the most valiant, honorable and courageous men and women in the United States,” Heidi and Spencer told People Magazine. “It was one of the best days of our lives.”
“Our freedom is so important to us and thanks to these Marines we get to be the entertainers we are. We wanted to take the time to honor them and pay our respects to the Marines who make this country and nation possible and allow us all the freedoms that we enjoy.”
The couple spent the day touring the entire base and meeting Marines stationed there. They even bought a new puppy to commerate their special day and named it after one of the Marines they met, “We named our new member of our family in honor of one the most courageous dedicated humans have ever come in contact with – our pup’s name is Sgt. Maj. Kasal.”
Montag and Pratt also announced their plans to return to Camp Pendleton on the Fourth of July, when Heidi will perform her single “Body Language” for 60,000 Marines on the beach.
“We wanted to find out how we can bring the awareness to these true heroes that don’t get the recognition and honor they deserve,” says the couple.
