Welcome to 3d Battalion, 1st Marines and to the Brahma Family!

     My name is Lora Garcia, and I am the Deployment Readiness Coordinator (DRC) for 3/1.  Our military families are the most resilient of families and can adapt and overcome the many challenges this lifestyle can throw at us.  I am here to ensure you are prepared for these challenges in the most supported way:

  • Communication
  • Information and Referral
  • Deployment Support

     Please do not hesitate to ask me questions; it is part of my job to answer them.  If you are a member of our Brahma Family and are NOT receiving emails from me, please let me know.  I also want to encourage you to get involved!  This is YOUR 3/1 Family so seize this opportunity to build a vibrant community and support our Marines and Sailors here with 3/1! 

You can do this by:

  • attending briefs
  • becoming a volunteer
  • attending a family event
  • or even attending classes provided through Marine Corps Family Team Building. 

     I welcome any ideas/feedback/information you may have so please call, text, email, or stop by any time.  I have an open-door policy so please do not hesitate to reach out.

“Welcome to the BRAHMA FAMILY
