Family Readiness


DEPLOYMENT Readiness Coordinator

On behalf of the Commanding Officer and the Marines and Sailors of 2nd Battalion, 1st Marines, 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 Deployment 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.
