Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program Policy
Marines, Sailors and their families are our most valuable resource. The Unit, Personal, and
Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) in Combat Logistics Battalion 11 exists to support all
Battalion Marines and Sailors, married and single, and their family members. Our command
prides itself on mission readiness and force preservation. Our Marines and Sailors can only
be fully ready when their families and support networks are prepared for the military lifestyle.
The Marine Corps has established numerous resources to support our Marines, Sailors and
families. Our UPFRP is here to help all Marines, Sailors and family members navigate the
resources and connect you with the right service at the right time.
Marines, Sailors and family members can contact the Combat Logistics Battalion 11
Family Readiness Officer, Mrs. Toni Ramirez; Combat Logistics Battalion 11 Family
Readiness Assistant; the Battalion Single Marine Program Representative, Corporal
Wasylyszyn, or a member of the Battalion Command Team (CO, XO, SgtMaj) for
guidance or assistance.
The key functions of our UPFRP are to build commitment and camaraderie, raise morale,
and raise unit readiness. I see our UPFRP as a combat multiplier equally as important as
individual and equipment readiness. My ultimate goal for this program is ready and resilient
Marines, Sailors and families able to respond to life, career, and mission events. This
resiliency coupled with the knowledge that their families are ready and being cared for
allows our Marines and Sailors to focus on the mission.
We need the active participation of all of our Marines, Sailors and family members to make
our program work. I fully expect every Marine and Sailor in our Battalion to participate in the
program and be accountable for his or her personal and family readiness. I charge leaders
at all levels to maintain a sense of importance for our UPFRP. As leaders, we have the
obligation to ensure that we take care of our Marines. This includes the families and support
networks that they rely upon to complete the demanding tasks and responsibilities in support
of the Battalion's mission.
