Deployment Readiness Coordinator (DRC)
Ms Gisela Lemon
Phone #: (760) 830-5872
Family Readiness Hotline: 800-759-7602
The assistance we provide is not only available during deployments but throughout your Marine's time here with 2/7. We are the direct link of communication between the Battalion Commander and the Families and communication is the key to readiness.
The Family Readiness Program provides All Marines the option of having up to four (4) authorized contacts. The information I can provide to you will depend on who the Marine authorizes in the Family Readiness Part of their MOL. Rest assured, when you hear from one of us, it is to offer support or to share official communication from the Command Team.
Whether you are experienced or new to this lifestyle, there are great workshops available through The Marine Corps Family Team Building. They offer great programs here at 29 Palms; including L.I.N.K.S Workshops (Lifestyle, Insight, Networking, Knowledge & Skills) for Spouses, Teens and Marines. They will be offering an online version of L.I.N.K.S for Parents and Siblings soon. CREDO (Chaplains Religious Enrichment Development Operation) offers great retreats for individuals, Couples and Families. These are just a few programs that are available. For more information, please shoot us an email.
If you would like to volunteer, there are many opportunities available. The Command Team is always looking for Morale Support Volunteers. These volunteers are open to anyone interested. Again, please contact us for more informatio
