Welcome mARINES, sailors, AND FAMILies!
The goal for our UPFRP is to provide the tools that foster independent dependents. With that in mind, we offer:
• Monthly spouse-led workshops as part of our Lunch & Learn series. These workshops are geared towards educating spouses of available resources.
• Semi-annual social events designed to help supplement your support networks.
• Quarterly volunteer opportunities within the Okinawa community to help make this a uniquely memorable duty station.
Here at 3d Medical Battalion, we strongly believe in becoming familiar with your resources before you need them. Our unique position in the Marine Corps requires us to be at optimal levels of readiness. That includes ensuring the proper welfare of the families, and it starts with service members completing their Contact Authorization Form, updating their Marine Online Family Readiness Contacts, and for those with dependents, creating an executable Family Care Plan. I can assist with information for all of the above.
Marine Corps life has its challenges and my intent is to alleviate some of those hardships by facilitating knowledge to Marines, Sailors, parents, siblings, and dependents. Here at 3d Medical Battalion we pride ourselves on our strong sense of family and community values. We hope that your time here on Okinawa will produce long-lasting friendships and many fond memories. Again, welcome to our family!
