Camp Pendleton, CA 92055-5361


On behalf of the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit, welcome to our family. I am here to enhance your family's morale and readiness, whether you are deployed or stateside.

"Family", as the Marine Corps defines it, is any unit into which the Marine is born, sworn or married. The Commandant of the Marine Corps has said that when a Marine makes an enduring commitment to the Marine Corps -  the Corps, in turn, makes an enduring commitment to every Marine and family member.

I am proud to be this unit's Deployment Readiness Coordinator. As your "DRC", it is my mission to provide you with:

  • Official Communication 
  • Marine and Family Readiness and Deployment support

Please know that along with the rest of our 11th MEU Family Readiness Command Team, I am committed to making this program and your time with us a success. With your assistance and support, together, we can make the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit a stronger and more resilient family.

You can reach me by dialing 760-846-6590 or by email at kyp.hughes@usmc.mil.
