Greetings family and friends,

      I would like to take this time to introduce you to Alpha Company's command leadership; Captain Joseph F. Cuscina is the Company Commander, 1stLt Chase B. Wheeler is the Company Executive Officer, and Gunnery Sergeant Michael A. Samson is the Company Gunnery Sergeant. My name is First Sergeant Bernard Moran, and I am the 1stSgt for Alpha Company. The Company Commander and I are fairly new to the Battalion and look forward to the months ahead as we prepare for our next mission. We are fortunate, not only to be apart of one of the best Battalions, but to also be apart of a Company with superb Marines and Sailors. We are fully commited to the SUCCESS of our Marines and Sailors.

      First and foremost I would like to welcome our Marines from 1st and 2nd platoons back from some well deserved time off. 3rd Platoon is still deployed and we are all looking forward to their safe return from Afghanistan in mid July. Now it's time to get back in the grind - the upcoming requirements we must accomplish. Our main priority is to ensure that all Marines and Sailors are fully trained and prepard for the upcoming deployment. We fully understand the role you, as a family member plays in the lives of your Marines and we will do our very best to keep everyone informed and ensure your Marines receive the utmost amount time with their family. If there are any questions or concerns that you may have please do not hesitate to let the Company Commander or myself know.

      Congratulations to Staff Sergeant Reese and his well deserved selection to Gunnery Sergeant.
