CAMP PENDLETON CHAPTER CHAPTER - Dec 03, 2014

Chapter Donates to Toys for Tots

Col. Roger Standfield, USMC, assistant chief of staff G-6, I Marine Expeditionary Force (MEF), was the guest speaker for the December luncheon. Col. Standfield spoke on Expeditionary Force-21 (EF-21) initiatives that the MEF is currently testing and training to. These include improving how the MEF supports the requirements of Geographic Combatant Commanders as well as the flexibility to accomplish diverse missions across the range of military operations. Col. Standfield spoke on the changes to command and control execution required to meet the objectives/goals of EF-21. Some of these changes include: exploration and development of a Naval fly-in command element and Cyber Electromagnetic Warfare Coordination Cell (CEWCC); reduce systems with redundant/overlapping capabilities; and the capability to control air and surface landing sites across the modern littoral environment. Chapter guests for the luncheon included Gunner Sgt. Matthew Klepsa, USMC, 4th Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, and Staff Sgt. Michael Castillo, USMC, Marine Combat Training Battalion, who were on hand representing the Toys for Tots drive. The chapter presented the Marines with $750 in toys and cash for Toys for Tots.
