In support of today’s Marines and their professional development, MCA&F provided a unit library to Charlie Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines.
On behalf of all the Marines in Charlie Company, 1st Battalion 5th Marines, I want to express our sincere appreciation to you and the Marine Corps Association/Foundation! Getting our professional library up and running was no small feat. However, with your cooperation and the superb support and assistance of the MCA/F, our Battalion now has a nearly complete professional library.
I also want to thank you for making the time to come out to San Mateo to personally brief the Marines from the Battalion on the Marine Corps Association/Foundation and its purpose and mission. Although, it was not an ideal "classroom" setting, we ALL enjoyed your enthusiasm, passion and the information you presented. I was informed that lots of Marines stayed around to "sign up" after your MOTIVATING brief! Again thank you for your time and support for the Marines and for continuing to "fight the good fight”!
