Vernal pools serve as specialized seasonal habitats for Fairy Shrimp to survive during the Spring and Summer months. 
There are approximately 4,000 vernal pools on Camp Pendleton. The amount of pools differ throughout the year due to changes in temperature, weather and other ecological conditions.
Vernal pools in Southern California are rare due to the droughts and erosive effects of coastal development but the base Environmental Security Department is committed to preserving natural resources and environmental stewardship.
Frishta and Army Capt. Jeremy Linn came from completely different worlds. Jeremy was a Christian, and a brash and lively outdoorsman from Kansas. Frishta on the other hand, is a Muslim who moved from Afghanistan to the United States as a refugee when she was 11 years old. She was older than him, and both had different views on life and love. Deployment was also on the horizon.
 
The unlikely couple would overcome these obstacles, but a bigger challenge was yet to come.
