The reorganization and relocation of First Radio Battalion by Headquarters Marine Corps HQMC and Marine Forces Pacific presents a number of logistical and fiscal challenges to coordinate moving manpower and equipment over thousands of miles. As a former member of First Radio Battalion, I have attempted to document and seek solutions to the operational difficulties that have beset the battalion for over 25 years. First, the battalions existing tables of organization and equipment have been modified, given the limitations of current structure and expected future operational requirements. Next, the modified tables have been produced as appendices to the thesis to document the finished results. Finally, costs were estimated for personnel transfer and vehicle shipment using the Crystal Ball Microsoft EXCEL spreadsheet add-in. The resulting analyses yield recommendations for relocating and reorganizing the battalion at Camp Pendleton.
