CAMP FOSTER, OKINAWA, Japan – — style=”margin: 0in 0in 10pt;”>A family readiness officer is a valued asset to the Marines and families who fall under their care. They contribute time, energy and resources to maintain family readiness within the Marine Corps.
The FRO is the link between the command, the unit and the families. Their mission is to keep the units and families under their watch informed and up-to-date on family readiness. The FRO is all about communication. Without that vital function, families may end up feeling segregated from the unit.
