Family Readiness Office
Phone #: (760) 763-4875




The mission of the Family Readiness Program is to equip our Marines, Sailors, and their families with the tools they need to meet the challenges of military life.  The Deployment Readiness Coordinator will provide official two-way command communication, information and referral services as well as readiness, and deployment support.  Often, during the tough times, the greatest comfort one can have is to know they have someone to turn to for assistance.  During those times, count on your DRC to be there, and ready to assist.

Whether you are new to the Marine Corps Family, or have been a family for several years, Marine Corps Family Team Building (MCFTB) offers many valuable workshops that will assist you in transitioning into the Marine Corps Family. .
