The base was named after Major General Joseph Pendleton, affectionately known as "Uncle Joe" to his troops, who was the driving force behind a Marine Corps base in the San Diego area. General Pendleton advocated for the West Coast base from the first day he stepped into the beautiful Southern California sun and was so taken with the area that he retired there, even becoming mayor of a local town.
