Organizational Mail Box:
Welcome to 3d Dental Battalion, 3D Marine Logistics Group!
First, I’d like to properly introduce myself. My name is Larry Borum and I am the Deployment Readiness Coordinator, formerly known as the Family Readiness Officer for 3d Dental Battalion. My job here at the battalion is to ensure a smooth transition for the Sailors as well as their families, by providing timely communication, readiness, and deployment support, in addition to information and resource referral. Anything that you would like to know about the Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) in general and what it can do for you and your family specifically, you need only ask. I am essentially your resources kiosk. If you need information about finding a job, things to do on the island, getting into school, Marine Corps / Navy Family Team Building programs etc., my office is a good place to begin your quest. 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 Dental 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 Family Readiness Contacts, and for those with dependents, creating an executable Family Care Plan. I can assist with information for all of the above. Life in the Navy has its challenges and my intent is to alleviate some of those hardships by facilitating knowledge to Sailors, parents, siblings, and dependents. Here at 3d Dental 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!
