GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. IT IS MY DISTINCT PLEASURE, ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE MARINE CORPS, TO SALUTE THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF THE 3D MARINE LOGISTICS GROUP (3D MLG) ON THE OCCASION OF YOUR 53RD ANNIVERSARY ON 1 MAY 2011.
2.  SINCE 1958, THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF 3D MLG HAVE PROVIDED SUSTAINED COMBAT LOGISTICS SUPPORT TO MARINE CORPS FORCES ASSIGNED TO THE WESTERN PACIFIC. MOST RECENTLY, YOU DEMONSTRATED YOUR ADAPTABILITY AND VERSATILITY BY MOBILIZING TO PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN AID WITHIN HOURS OF THE EARTHQUAKE AND TSUNAMI IN JAPAN.
3.  AS YOU CONTINUE TO AID THOSE DEVASTATED BY THE DISASTER, TAKE A MOMENT TO REFLECT ON THE DISTINGUISHED LEGACY OF 3D MLG AND REMEMBER THOSE WHO HAVE PAID THE ULTIMATE PRICE THROUGHOUT THE UNIT'S HISTORY. PLEASE KNOW THAT YOU HAVE THE UTMOST ADMIRATION AND GRATITUDE OF YOUR FELLOW MARINES AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
4.  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND SEMPER FIDELIS. JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
