Dear Families of 1st Battalion, 1st Marines,


Welcome to this prestigious unit! 1/1 has an incredible history and our Marines are held to the highest standards being that they are “Right of line and first afoot.”

I am Stephanie Murray, your Family Readiness Officer (FRO). As your FRO, it is my mission to provide you with:


                -              Official Communication


                -              Information and Referral Services


                -              Marine and Family Readiness and Deployment Support



My goal is to empower you as family members to be self-sufficient and stable in order to allow your Marine or Sailor to complete his mission in the most effective manner.

Along with the support of the 1/1 Family Readiness Command Team- Lieutenant Colonel Jackola, Sergeant Major Reed, Major Kinitz, and Chaplain Neil- I am committed to the success of this program and to your success as military families.

I care deeply about the families of 1/1 and want to see each of you grow in resiliency and enjoy your time with the unit. I was a spouse to an Infantry Marine for 8 years, so I understand the unique challenges that you face as family members. Never hesitate to pick up the phone; know that I am always here for you.

I encourage you to participate in the many wonderful community and Battalion Family Readiness events and activities offered to you. I would like you to know that the Marine Corps has broadened the definition of a Marine’s “family” to include spouses, parents, fiancés, girlfriends, and even best friends. If a Marine considers you family, then you are part of our 1/1 family too!  If you would like to offer your skills or time, we would love to have you as a Family Readiness Volunteer.

I look forward to working with each of you!
