GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE MARINE CORPS, IT IS MY DISTINCT PLEASURE TO SALUTE THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF THE 3D MARINE LOGISTICS GROUP ON THE OCCASION OF YOUR 56TH ANNIVERSARY.
2.  SINCE YOUR ACTIVATION ON 1 MAY 1958, THE MARINES AND SAILORS OF 3D MLG HAVE PROVIDED SUSTAINED COMBAT LOGISTICS SUPPORT TO MARINE FORCES ASSIGNED TO THE WESTERN PACIFIC.  WHETHER PROVIDING FIRST-RATE COMBAT SERVICE SUPPORT TO FELLOW WARFIGHTERS IN AFGHANISTAN OR RESPONDING TO THE TYPHOON DAMAGED ISLANDS OF THE PHILIPPINES, 3D MLG HAS CARRIED OUT EACH MISSION WITH PROFESSIONALISM AND DEVOTION TO DUTY, AND EMBODIES THE AXIOM "IN EVERY CLIME AND PLACE."
3.  YOUR FELLOW MARINES AND AMERICAN PEOPLE SHARE MY GRATITUDE FOR YOUR SERVICE TO THIS GREAT NATION AND THE SACRIFICES YOU'VE MADE.  AS YOU CELEBRATE YOUR VENERABLE HISTORY, TAKE TIME TO PAUSE TO HONOR THOSE OF 3D MLG WHO HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
4.  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY AND SEMPER FIDELIS.  JAMES F. AMOS, GENERAL, U.S. MARINE CORPS, COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS.//
