Family Readiness


On behalf of the Commander of U.S. Marine Corps Forces, South, The Family Readiness team would like to welcome you and your family to the U.S. Marine Corps Forces, South family.  My name is Master Sgt. Booker Maxwell, your Family Readiness Officer, my deputy is Sgt. Jacob Smith. As your new Family Readiness Officer, I am prepared to assist you and/or your family in all areas of information, resource, morale, and readiness during your tour with U.S. Marine Corps Forces, South.  The South Florida, Miami area is an exciting place, full of unique opportunities that are much different than the traditional lifestyle associated with being stationed aboard a military installation.


As a military father, I understand the challenges associated with the military lifestyle.  Whether you are preparing or just completed your recent PCS - remain confident in knowing that the Command, your family sponsor, and I will do what it takes to make your transition period less stressful.  There are many support organizations agencies in the area that are prepared to support our military service members and families.  We are here, let us assist you.         

In addition, if you are interested in volunteering your time to support our Family Readiness Programs please let me know.  The success of our program is centered on our volunteers. 


We are always looking for energetic volunteers to assist during a family event or help in strengthening our program in anyway.  

For more information on any of our programs, resource opportunities, or upcoming family events please do not hesitate to contact me at the information listed below. 

In closing, we are thrilled to have you as part of the MARFORSOUTH family and look forward to meeting you and/or your family at our next family event.
