"Taking Care of Our Most Important Resource"



To provide the most responsive, caring and professional support to all 3d MLG family members thereby increasing both family and warfighting readiness.


The goal of personal and family readiness programs is to provide resource information and training in addition to support services to enhance a service member’s personal and family readiness. A service member must ensure their personal and family affairs are in order so that they will remain fully focused on the mission, whether in garrison or in combat. A ready service member and their family:

  • Are prepared for family separations and life events
  • Understand the additional responsibilities that will fall on the family when the service member departs
  • Are knowledgeable of and able to utilize information about benefits, entitlements, programs, and services provided through the Department of Defense, the Marine Corps, and the community

  • Are knowledgeable of command structure and resources available to assist and contribute to personal and family readiness goals


To educate, train, and prepare service members and families to achieve and maintain a high state of personal readiness and resiliency in response to life’s events by providing information, tools, resources and support to empower them to take care of themselves.

MCO 5354.1F updates Marine Corps policy, procedures, and responsibilities for preventing and responding to prohibited conduct involving sexual harassment, prohibited discrimination, harassment, hazing, bullying, dissident and protest activities, and wrongful distribution or broadcasting of intimate images. 



Military Equal Opportunity (MEO) is a function of command. Marine Corps leaders must ensure their people are well-led and cared for physically, emotionally, and spiritually, in and out of combat. “Taking care of Marines” means vigorously enforcing our high standards of performance and conduct. We will hold each other accountable and address violations expeditiously, at the lowest appropriate level. 

The responsibility of a successful MEO program rests with the commander. Commanders have earned special trust and confidence and are accountable for all of their decisions, actions, and inactions. The Prohibited Activities and Conduct (PAC) prevention and response measures provide commanders the discretion to assess, investigate, and take corrective action to ensure unit cohesion and warfighting effectiveness. 

Marine Corps small unit leaders, company-grade officers and mid-grade staff noncommissioned officers (SNCOs) have experience, maturity, and close daily connection to our most junior Marines. These leaders are in the best position to lead, educate, train, supervise, and instill our high standards. 


Prohibited discriminatory and harassment practices within the Marine Corps are counter-productive, unacceptable, and will not be tolerated. The Marine Corps will maintain a culture of dignity, care, and concern in which all members of the organization are afforded equal treatment and opportunity to achieve their full potential based upon individual merit, fitness, intellect, and ability. All Service members will cultivate an environment free from PAC. PAC undermine morale, reduce combat readiness, and prevent maximum utilization and development of the Marine Corps’ most vital asset: its people. 



You can report through your  

 1. Chain of Command 

     The Chain of Command is the primary and preferred channel to prevent and respond to complaints of PAC. Use of the chain of command to address PAC exemplifies trust in leadership to quickly and effectively address violations of our standards. 

 2. Equal Opportunity Representative (EOR)  

     The EOR is an authorized source within the command to receive complaints on behalf of the commander. EORs are appointed by their commander. 

3. Equal Opportunity Advisor  

     EOAs are the Marine Corps SMEs on command climate and PAC. EOAs are assigned by DC M&RA. 3d MLG EOA DSN 315-622-7654 and email
