In February, the chapter held its second event held at the Officers' Club aboard the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) in Twentynine Palms, California. The topic for the luncheon was current and future communications plans within the U.S. Marine Corps provided by guest speaker Brig. Gen. Kevin J. Nally, USMC, who is the director, command, control, communications and computers (C4), and chief information officer of the Marine Corps. Capt. Marc N.

Distinguished visitors included the commanding general of MCAGCC, Maj. Gen. David H. Berger, USMC; the commanding officer of the Marine Corps Communication-Electronics School, Col. Gregory T. Breazile, USMC; and the communications chief of the Marine Corps, Master Gunnery Sgt. Mathis B. Richard, USMC. Gen.
