2018 Deployment will be hard... You can help make the good-bye a little easier

Our Fighting Fifth Marines will soon be deployed on a Special Purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force (SPMAGTF) to the Middle East. Families will say "Farewell" and be separated for nine long months. Babies will be born, children will graduate, birthdays will be missed and challenges at home will need to be met in the days, weeks and months with their Marine stationed across the world.

The Dana Point 5th Marine Regiment Support Group will provide morale and encouragement during these long months starting with DEPLOYMENT and the long good-bye.
