GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. On behalf of the entire Marine Corps family, it is with great pleasure that I congratulate the Marines and Sailors of the 1st Marine Logistics Group (1st MLG) on your 75th anniversary.

3. As you celebrate your honored history, know that we are proud of your achievements, grateful for your diligence and proficiency, and join you in celebrating 75 years of exceptional service.
4. Happy anniversary and Semper Fidelis, David H. Berger, General, United States Marine Corps, Commandant of the Marine Corps.//
