11th Marine Regiment
Uniformed Readiness Coordinator
Work: 760 725-3538



On behalf of the Commanding Officer and the Marines and Sailors of the 11th Marine Regiment “The Cannon Cockers”, welcome to the Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) Web page. The Marine Corps recognizes that the families of its Marines and Sailors are an important asset and should be treated as such. Family Readiness is an essential component to the success of the unit’s mission, and offers the support needed to lessen the impact of deployments or other military commitments on the military family. We recognize that supporting Marines and Sailors through these times takes great sacrifice, and that military families also need support.

Unit Personal and Family Readiness is designed to ensure Marines, Sailors and families are prepared and equipped with the knowledge and tools to successfully meet the challenges of the military lifestyle. The importance of educating, informing, and tending to the needs of all Marines, Sailors and their families, is our priority. The UPFRP offers ample information and resources to assist Marines, Sailors and family members in attaining personal and family readiness. The Marine and Family Programs office also has many programs and can direct you to numerous organizations available to assist the families aboard Camp Pendleton.

As the Uniformed Readiness Coordinator, I am dedicated to providing you with official communication between the command, Marines, Sailors and families, information regarding Readiness and Deployment Support, assistance in finding resources and services, and coordinating events such as pre-deployments briefs, family days and homecoming celebrations.

I look forward to hearing from you. Your involvement in the Family Readiness Program would be an invaluable asset, benefiting the command and its family members. Your support, encouragement, and willingness to hold down the home front during training exercises and deployments, enable our Marines and Sailors to clear the table of other issues so they may fully focus on their military duties.

You may contact the Uniformed Readiness Coordinator via email at 11thMarinesURC@usmc.mil or (760) 763-0004.

Uniformed Readiness Coordinator

“Marines take care of their own – period. This enduring pledge between Marines is never more sacred than during time of war. Just as every Marine makes a commitment to the Corps when they earn the title Marine, the Corps makes an enduring commitment to every Marine – and an enduring commitment to their family.”
James T. Conway, Commandant of the Marine Corps

About Family Readiness


The Family Readiness Program (FRP) is a commander’s program that provides support to individual service members and their families. The goal of the 11th Marines FRP is to help our Marines and Sailors focus on their missions knowing that their families are well-supported and informed in their absence. Marines, Sailors and Families can depend on the FRP to pass on important information and serve as a support and feedback system for families in the unit.  In addition, they can count on the FRP to offer:

- Information and referrals to base and local resources.
- Deployment readiness training, resources, support and guidance.
- Career/volunteer opportunities for unit family members.
- Morale Support.
- Opportunities for family members to learn more about the Marine Corps, unit and the support systems available.
- Intervention and support when faced with challenges.
- Information from the command through official communication.
- Support extended to the entire unit family to include children, spouses, parents and other extended family members.


Anyone and everyone are encouraged to participate. This can include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, fiancĂ©es, children and more. If you are interested, we’d love to have you as an active member of our community.


No matter how much or little time you can give, your contribution and involvement in the FRP is valuable. You can choose to be involved in different ways. Our Family Readiness Team includes the following types of volunteers:


Most units have at least one Family Readiness Advisor, and typically the advisor is a spouse of a senior Marine in the unit, however, we want our team to represent our unit as a whole and ensure everyone in the 11th Marines has a voice.

Family Readiness Advisors are individuals who work on the Family Readiness Command Team (FRCT) to provide feedback and suggestions to the FRO and command team. FR Advisors are leaders on the FRT who help shape our program. A family readiness advisor embodies the commander’s goals and intents and helps ensure that all unit members have a “voice”.


These individuals work closely in support of the family readiness command team and the FRO by helping to execute the commander’s intent with regard to the unit family readiness program. They work closely in support of service members and their families to provide resources and referrals when necessary. We are looking for volunteers with Marines/Sailors of all ranks and experience.


These are individuals who volunteer to participate and help specific events. These volunteers assist with the planning, coordination and execution of the event.
