"On behalf of the Commanding Officer, I would like to take this opportunity

to welcome you to Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 122. My name is First

Lieutenant Emily Hastings and I am honored to serve as your Uniformed

Readiness Coordinator (URC).


Command Readiness is a vital part of our unit's mission to support our

Marines, Sailors, and the wellbeing of our families. While it is the primary

responsibility of the individual Marine/Sailor to keep his/her family

informed, the URC can assist in this responsibility by providing resource

information regarding the many services and programs that are available.


Contact information is important, and that is why I value yours. When your

Marine or Sailor checks in, he/she provides me with family members'

information so that I may keep you informed and connected; please ensure

your Marine/Sailor has listed you as a contact. The URC utilizes the

VMFA-122 "Family Connect" (W) Facebook page, unit website, and email to send

information concerning classes, free events, unit gatherings, and more to

keep you in the know! Sensitive information will only be passed via phone or

in person.


I believe that in order to succeed as a military family, you have to have

the right tools. These tools include an understanding of how the military

works and an abundant knowledge of resources. To provide you with these

tools I urge you to reach out to me if ever you have a question. Building

resilient families, Marines, and Sailors to be prepared for whatever the

Marine Corps challenge you with is my priority.


Every day is a learning experience as a member of the Marine Corps family.

As your URC, I am available to help you with a variety of challenges as a

communication link and an information and referral resource. This includes

the service members, spouses, parents, extended family, friends, and others.


I encourage you to get involved and attend the different events we host here

aboard MCAS Yuma and I am always in need of volunteers so please contact me

if you are interested in helping out in one form or another! In the

meantime, please let me know if there is anything we can help you with. If

you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me at the numbers

listed above or via e-mail.


Again, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Flying Leatherneck Family. I

look forward to having you as a valuable member of our team."
