Marines and Sailors,

Congratulations on your assignment to Comanche Company, 3D Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion.  On behalf of LtCol Philpott, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and/or your family to the Wolfpack.  I welcome you as an integral member of our organization, which is responsible for the conduct of armored reconnaissance and security operations in support of the 1st Marine Division.

As a professional warrior, you are expected to engage your mind and body in the unrelenting preparation for combat. Proficiency in your specific billet, MOS, or collateral duty will be essential to the success of the Comanche Company. Strive to improve on a daily basis, be professional on and off duty and maintain a positive mental attitude and you will be successful.

You will be assigned a sponsor to assist in your transition to 29 Palms, MCAGC.  Your sponsor will assist in your transition and facilitate your check in process.  Additionally, your sponsor will provide you copies of Comanche 6 and Wolfpack Command Philosophies as well as a copy of the Blue Diamond Letter. You are expected to have read all documents upon check in. 

I am honored to be afforded the opportunity to work side-by-side with you.


Semper Fidelis,

Captain L. C. Culver                                                                                  1stSgt B. S. Sundell
