Marines and families of Bravo Company,
My Name is David Murray, and I am the Company Commander for Bravo Company. I am honored and proud that my family and I could return to 29 Palms, where we have been continually impressed by the Marines and Families of 1st Tank Battalion. Some of the best times and best friends I’ve ever made happened while I was previously in the battalion, and I’m excitedly looking forward to what the future will bring.
Your Marines are accomplishing, and will continue to accomplish, great things. Although the operational tempo is often quite busy, the battalion and the Bravo Company staff are committed to building and maintaining the Marine Corps Family Team. Our Battalion Family Readiness Officer, Ms. Janey K. Wasdin, is a tremendous resource for the company, Marines, and Families. Mrs. Wasdin was the Family Readiness Officer during my first tour here, and has been a tremendous wealth of knowledge and assistance throughout the numerous deployments, exercises, and operations the battalion has conducted.
The Marine Corps is a unique organization. Like all organizations, we are made up of people and families. The Bravo team is committed to families and readiness. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself or Ms. Wasdin.
Thank you for your continued support to your Marine. Their accomplishments are not possible without the tremendous support you provide at home. I look forward to our time together and the road ahead.
David R. Murray
