MCES held their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony on 24 April 2015 to honor and show appreciation to those who have dedicated their time to supporting our program. Being involved brings added benefits to our Marines and family members while building a positive, proactive community. The MCES volunteers have helped with baking, cooking, creating flyers, planning, coordinating and executing events. It is estimated that the volunteers have dedicated over 350 hours of their time to help support the MCES family readiness program through programs such as cookie drops, the holiday party and decorating the barracks for the holidays. Thank you MCES volunteers for all you do.

Mobility on the battlefield remains one of the hallmarks of Marine engineers therefore adapting to changing environments and conditions is crucial to mission accomplishment.  The MCES Maintenance platoon did just that while serving as the labor force for a Mobility Matting Demonstration aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune on 15 April 2015.  Deschamps Mat Systems, the Maker of MobiMat, a matting system used by the USMC aviation community for expedient Helicopter Landing Zones (HLZ), provided a demonstration of some new products aimed at mobility in soft terrain.
