MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDING OFFICER
To the newest Member of the Air Station Team,
I want to welcome you to Marine Corps Air Station Camp Pendleton (callsign “Point Break”)! You are now part of the finest and one of the busiest Air Stations in the Marine Corps. You are joining a professional group, dedicated to doing the right thing and accomplishing our mission. Our mission is to provide exceptional aviation installation support and enablement to the warfighters of I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF) and our tenant organizations, the Marines and Sailors of Marine Aircraft Group 39 and 41 (MAG-39/41). Your vital contribution to the mission will ensure that I MEF units are combat-ready and prepared to deploy in support of contingency operations.
In order to enhance mission accomplishment, we must preserve our most important assets - YOU! The safety and quality of life of you and your family is extremely important and I want to ensure that we foster a professional, safe, and comfortable environment in which to work, live, and learn. We are consistent in our efforts to improve the care, conditions, and quality of life of our Marines, Sailors, and civilians aboard the air station. These efforts ensure that YOU are better enabled and equipped to accomplish the mission in this environment of high operational tempo.
We are family here at MCAS Camp Pendleton, and we take care of each other. The health and welfare of you and your family are extremely important to us. We promote family readiness, knowing that it is a force multiplier and leads to improved mission readiness. Caring for the families of our Marines, Sailors, and civilian Marines starts with me and permeates through the chain of command to each of you.
To that end, our Uniformed Readiness Coordinator and Chaplain are here to assist you throughout your tour at MCAS Camp Pendleton. They are my trusted agents on personal and family support matters. They possess a wealth of knowledge to help you and your family locate the information and resources you need to grow and prosper during this tour. I encourage you and your family to join in the many installation and community activities that are available to you. Please visit our website at http://www.mcaspendleton.marines.mil for important links and information to aid in your transition and help keep you and your family informed.
