The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group (DPSG) is the beneficiary of a unique Pirates of the Caribbean exhibit at “Stanley Haus”, located at 8 Oak Ridge Circle in Aliso Viejo.

The Stanley family, longtime supporters and “Friends of the Fifth,” created the Disney-inspired exhibit to entertain local communities and support DPSG by raising donations from those who come to enjoy this fantastic site.

The colorful front yard displays are fully animated and well lit at night. Pirate Scenarios make use of several neighboring properties on the cul-de-sac, and the kids who live there dress up as pirates and offer hot chocolate and treats to weekend visitors.

The Stanley house can be located by following this link:

The DPSG is a non-profit organization made up of local volunteers who support service members and their families from 5e Marine Regiment and the Wounded Warriors Battalion West at Camp Pendleton. It currently has more than 350 volunteers from all walks of life. Ages vary from high school students to seniors and everyone in between.
