On behalf of the District’s Command Team, greetings and welcome aboard!

You are a welcomed addition to the 12th Marine Corps District (12thMCD) family and we look forward to working with you.

The goal of the Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program is to provide support to Marines and their families. We take pride in ensuring that we are offering the best quality support for the unit, the Marine, and the family members. Family, to us, is defined as all members of a Marine's family.  You will have an opportunity upon check-in, to tell us who family is to you through the updating of your MOL Family Profile, or through the completion of the NAVMC 11654 Authorization Form.  Support for you and your family shall be provided to regardless of your marital status, to include: your spouse, children, and/or your designated parents/extended family members. This service and support is paramount to an increase in personal and unit readiness.  Personal, and Family Readiness is a priority and is the primary foundation for unit and mission readiness.

As the Deployment Readiness Coordinator (DRC), my primary duty is to support the Commanding Officer with communication to the Marines and their family members, to provide information and resource referral, to provide deployment and readiness support, and volunteer management. I also serve as an informational link between the 12thMCD Commander and your Recruiting Station (RS) Uniformed Readiness Coordinators (URCs). Your unit URCs will keep you informed of training events, briefs, local, current and command-sponsored events. You will receive e-mails, phone calls and messages from MOL informing you of what is taking place within your respective command. It is imperative that you contact your URC if you have any major life events, or changes in contact information, so that they can update their databases.

As soon as you come on deck, ensure that you check in with either myself at the District HQs, or your URC at the RS. We have important documents for you to complete.  Spouses and other family members are welcomed to contact me or the RS URC for information about the area, resource referrals, and volunteer opportunities.

Our various Command Teams will ensure you are well informed about all programs and resources available to you and your family while you are a member of the 12thMCD family. We welcome any feedback on events you attend or would like to attend. We are always open to suggestions and new ideas. We look forward to hearing from you.

On behalf of the Command Team, welcome aboard. I along with the other URCs look forward to assisting you and your family, with any concerns you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
