SSO - Joshua Tree - Marine Corps Communications and Electronic School

December 2, 2017

Marines from the Marine Corps Communications and Electronic School (MCCES) at Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center (MCAGCC) Twentynine Palms attended a climbing and hiking event Saturday December 2, 2017 at Joshua Tree National Park (Indian Cove). 

MCCES Students and Staff participated in a rock climbing and hiking event at Joshua Tree National Park.  The event focused on  strengthening resiliency and spiritual fitness.  Students and staff had an opportunity to participate in a meal, listen to a guest speaker, and engage in individual and group discussion in a wilderness setting.  The event gave service members  a chance to relax and let their guard down, unpack the stress of daily life, refresh their spirit, clear their minds, and restore the soul.

Kutless Concert with 5th Marine Regiment

3rd Battalion 5th Marines at Camp Pendleton hosted a spiritual resiliency event with band Kutless on February 11, 2017.

Nearly 600 Marines, Sailors, veterans, and their families were treated to food, festivities, and an incredible concert with Kutless.  Eight time Afghanistan USMC Force Recon veteran, Chad Robichaux, founder and president of Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs gave a resounding talk on resiliency and how a life of faith can save us from being "stuck on the x;" in the cross airs of destruction.  Attendees were riveted to Chad's speech as he discussed real life issues, his struggles coming home from combat, his rise to world champion MMA fighter, to coming to Christ and having his life totally and completely changed forever.
