CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. --

Husbands and wives of service members with 2nd Supply Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 25, 2nd Marine Logistics Group participated in a Jane Wayne Day here Nov. 7. 

The spouses came to Camp Lejeune for a better understanding of their Marines’ duties and to get to know other spouses.

“The purpose of [Jane Wayne Day] is to provide the spouses of 2nd Supply Bn. the knowledge and understanding of what a Marine does during Marine Corps common skills training, and promote camaraderie among spouses,” said Staff Sgt. Robert D. Wahnee, the acting range officer in charge for the pistol portion of the day.

Throughout the day, loved ones participated in a variety of activities their Marines have performed during their career, including navigating an obstacle course, firing a pistol and getting hands-on with other weapons utilized by the Marine Corps. Spouses also participated in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, completed a partial combat fitness test, visited the Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer and toured a vehicle display which included a seven ton, Logistics Vehicle System Replacement, and Humvee.

During the obstacle course and CFT Marines aided their spouses by helping them over logs and shouting words of encouragement.

“The best part was the teamwork and seeing her come across the finish line,” said Maj. Alfredo Romero, the company commander for Supply Co., 2nd Supply Bn. “My wife is pretty tough.”

Following the events, the families regrouped at the Goettge Memorial Field House for lunch, and the presentation of certificates and dog tags, which were bestowed upon the spouses by Lt. Col. Jesse A. Kemp, the battalion commanding officer.

“We don’t get the luxury of choosing what the weather is like … [but] I can’t think of a better way for you to experience what your Marines and sailors go through,” said Kemp to the families about the rainy conditions. “Like we say in the Marine Corps, ‘If it ain’t raining, we ain’t training.’”
