We here at 1st Tank Battalion want to take this opportunity to welcome you and express how happy we are that you are joining the 1st Tank Battalion’s “Marine Family.”
 As your Family Readiness Office it is my intention to support a pro-active environment, encourage creativity and maintain a “can-do” attitude. In addition, the Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program mission is to provide reliable, practical information and support to our families. Let me take a minute to give you our definition of a “family member,” this is a person(s) that you feel was, and is, significant in your life. A mother, father, sister, brother, spouse, child or that special person that you feel is an integral part of your extended family.
 Being a family member to an active duty Marine or Sailor is challenging, at best, it is the mission of the Unit, Personal Family Readiness Program to provide you with an ear to listen, a heart to empathize, a communication lifeline, and the primary source for those tools necessary to meet the challenges of the military lifestyle and succeed.
 If there is anything that I can do to make your transition to Twenty-nine Palms a more positive experience please, do not hesitate to contact me directly at (760)830-1997 or (760) 689-5495. Also, you can visit the Battalion website at, or our Facebook page at WWW.FACEBOOK.COM, search 1st Tank Battalion. In addition to the public Facebook page we have a closed group page for only the current Marines, Sailors and family members of the battalion named Tank Tracks FRO, please send a friend request so that you will have access to our page.
 In parting, I at one point was a new spouse to the Marine Corps and to Twenty-nine Palms, it can be overwhelming and at times frightening, it is at those times that  your 1st Tank Battalion Family will be there, just stop by to chat, or give me a call!
 Again, welcome to the 1st Tanks Battalion Family.
