Family Readiness Officer:
Mrs. Sonette D. Avalos
1st Battalion, 1st Marines
Cell: (760) 207-3441
Office: (760) 763-1429
“The Corps most valuable resource is the individual Marine and their family.”
My mission is to provide you with:
• Official Communication
• Information and Referral Services
• Marine And Family Readiness and Deployment Support
The 1/1 Family Readiness Command Team is dedicated to ensuring you are prepared for the unique challenges that come with being the family of a military member.
The Marine Corps has broadened the definition of a Marine/Sailor’s “family” to include: blood relatives, friends, or other close relationships as designated by the member. Therefore, the military member choses who he considers family.
I encourage you to participate in the many wonderful community and Battalion Family Readiness events and activities offered. For the most up-to-date announcements and event details register on our members-only eMarine site (see details below).
