Active-duty fund drive begins

Brig. Gen. Craig Q. Timberlake speaks to Marine Corps Installations Pacific and III Marine Expeditionary Force leaders about the annual active-duty fund drive in support of the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society during the drive’s kick-off breakfast March 7 at the Ocean Breeze on Camp Foster. The fund drive began March 8 and will last until April 5, with the goal of making it easy for Marines and sailors to donate money for fellow service members in financial need. NMCRS uses donations to provide services such as interest-free loans, grants, scholarships and financial counseling to Marines, sailors and their families. Timberlake is the commanding general of 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade and deputy commanding general of III Marine Expeditionary Force.
