No, there is not a "key volunteer" anymore. There is however a FRO and FRAs.
If you would like to get in contact with yours you can pm or share here your unit and I can tell you who your FRO is or someone else will answer you as to who it is.
Some of the FROs are on here already although they like to think they are hushy hushy about it. Please ladies help her out. =0
and not a single one of you would step up to help another Marine wife.
such a disgrace.
Yet you all seem to find time to gossip and whisper when away from the keyboard.
I agree CC. Though I'm not a FRO I might have some helpful info. If you go to www.29palms.usmc.mil it lists the "resident units" on the right hand side of the page. If you click on the units website most list a "family readiness" page on the left. You should be able to click that and the FRO's contact info should be listed there.
I'm a 3/7 spouse so here's the FRO's info:
Also the 7th Marines Regiment FRO is Denise Cullum
Denise is fantastic, though she had a rough day, I'm sure she'd be able to give you the other FRO's contact info.
Keep in mind the FRO's have lots of responsibilities so if they don't answer the phone leave a messege. In my experience they call you back as soon as they can. Some sooner than others :) !!
Hope this helps!
FRO= Family Readiness Officer.
