Family Readiness Program
Family readiness is a combat multiplier, as important as individual, equipment and combat readiness. It is the ability of the individual Marine and their family to successfully balance life, career and mission events through active and reserve service, and is supported by the enduring partnership between the unit’s Family Readiness Command Team and Marine Corps Community Services. It is an obligation between the Corps, the Marine and their entire family. The individual Marine is responsible and accountable for his personal and family readiness.
The Unit Family Readiness Program is the responsibility of the commanding officer. Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) is responsible for supporting the individual Marine, their family and the Unit Family Readiness Program. Contact your unit’s family readiness officer or the trainer at 703-634-2765 or 703-634-2678 or visit www.quantico.usmc-mccs.org/index.cfm/marine-family/family-readiness.
