Welcome to the Combat Logistics Regiment 3 WORKHORSE Family!

Konnichiwa and hajimemashite! Hello and nice to meet you!

My name is Sonya Leong, the Deployment Readiness Coordinator (formerly known as the FRO) for Combat
Logistics Regiment 3 (CLR-3) and its subordinate commands, 3D Landing Support Battalion (3D LSB), 3D
Transportation Battalion (3D TB), and Combat Logistics Battalion 4 (CLB-4). I’m very happy to be a part of this
fantastic unit and to have the opportunity to serve as the DRC. I have been a Marine spouse for 15 years and
was an Air Force brat prior to that. Being a part of the military community is special but can also prove to be
challenging, which is where my job comes in.
I work to materialize the Commanding Officer’s vision of their Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program
(UPFRP.) The goal of the UPFRP is to dispense timely and accurate Official Command Communication; provide
Information, Resource and Referral Services; deliver Readiness and Deployment Support; and lastly oversee
Volunteer Management. All of this is furnished to enhance our Marine’s or Sailor’s personal and family
As the DRC, one of my roles is to act as a liaison between families and the command by facilitating two-way
communication. Additionally, I facilitate referrals to community resources provided through the Department
of Defense, Marine Corps Community Services, and other sister organizations. In the event of a deployment,
I provide pre-, mid-, and post-deployment support in the form of passing information, organizing workshops,
and offering support services to help ease the burden placed on families. I also aid in the planning of unit
events that serve as morale boosters and encourage unit comradery, such as family days and holiday parties.
Having detailed my role as the DRC, I would like to ask for your participation in the UPFRP. The UPFRP Team
realizes that the program cannot thrive to its greatest potential without the support of the Marines, Sailors,
and their families. Please know that any input or ideas you may have for the program are valued and very
much appreciated. In addition, we welcome volunteers to assist in any capacity, whether as an officially
appointed Advisor or Assistant, or as a periodic extra set of hands. You are encouraged to get involved to help
build vibrant CLR-3, 3D TB, 3D LSB, and CLB-4 communities!
The UPFRP team also includes Uniformed Readiness Coordinators (URCs) who are active duty Marines within
each unit, the Chaplain, Military Family Life Counselors, and the Embedded Behavioral Health and Prevention
Capability Specialist. We are all available to provide support to CLR-3 Marines, Sailors, and families. I have an
open door policy so feel free to contact me or stop by my office located at Godfrey Hall, Bldg. 5713, room 118
on Camp Foster. Semper Paratus!

"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.
