CAMP PENDLETON CHAPTER CHAPTER - Jan 18, 2012

Speech Covers CISD Responsibilities

Pete Copeland, assistant chief of staff, Communication Information Systems Department (CISD), Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, provided the January luncheon attendees with a presentation on the organizational structure and mission responsibilities of the CISD. The Area Control Center (one of seven divisions within the CISD) is responsible for all active duty Marine units west of the Mississippi River. Additionally, the CISD provides network connectivity for Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton and all tenant units. Copeland provided a snapshot of the ongoing military construction projects aboard the base and the associated telecommunications requirements. Capt. David H. Grundies, USN (Ret.), regional vice president, was on hand to present the chapter with its 2011 Model Chapter banner. The chapter paid respects to the late Paul Wickstrom, a former chapter president who passed away in December. Wickstrom turned over chapter president duties in 2009 but remained active within the chapter as a vice president and with the educational programs. The chapter is proud to announce the creation of the Paul Wickstrom Memorial Fund.
