MARINE CORPS AIR GROUND COMBAT CENTER TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif. --

The website eMarine rolled out a new mobile access site on Jan. 22, 2014, that allows users to quickly check up on their units’ command information, most recent photographs, announcements, frequently asked questions and downloads.

With the goal of allowing service members and their families to have access to all of their units’ upcoming events and schedules at the flick of a finger, eMarine created a new mobile view format that can be accessed on hand-held devices such as smartphones and tablets.

The website eMarine rolled out a new mobile access site on Jan. 22, 2014, that allows users to quickly check up on their units’ command information, most recent photographs, announcements, frequently asked questions and downloads.

While there are certain features a user cannot access on a mobile device, it simplifies the process of obtaining vital, unit-specific information, according to Jessica M. Arthur, family readiness officer, Combat Center.

“This is a great tool for service members and their families to stay connected with one another,” Arthur said. “Here at the Combat Center, we have many deployable units, and this can be used as a great tool to gather information on where a service member is or when they are coming home.”

The eMarine website is an online, 24-hour extension of a unit’s FRO, who acts as the overall liaison between a Marine’s family and their unit. FRO’s are in charge of managing each unit’s eMarine page.

Every eMarine page includes forums, which encourage interaction and communication within each unit, according to Sharon Altemoos, family readiness program trainer, Marine Corps Family Team Building.

“Marines are able to invite a maximum of four family members to access a specific Marine Corps unit’s page,” Altemoos said. “Once everyone is synchronized and able to log in, each person can customize their page specific to their Marine or unit. What will be nice about the new mobile view is that now they can get the most recent updates in chronological order, as opposed to having to scroll through the full website.”

For more information on a unit’s eMarine page or to gain access, contact your unit’s FRO or visit www.eMarine.org.

Displays celebrate Combat Center’s ancient history

By Kelly O'Sullivan | August 18, 2014

Long before Marines braved the Mojave Desert’s harsh environs to train for combat, the area was home to giants locked in an epic struggle to survive. Mastodons, giant tortoise and sloths, horses and other prehistoric animals that roamed the peaks and valleys of the Marine Corps Air Combat Center ultimately lost their battle, leaving behind MORE

What I've Learned: Robin Hoke

By Cpl. Kathryn Seiler | August 18, 2014

This will be my third year running the CFT as a civilian, as a woman, 50 years old and over. I wanted to be able to complete a 1st class CFT.

The first year was kind of a disaster, the second year I scored a 296, which was last year, and MORE
