2nd MLG print shop manager keeps unit inked

20 May 2011 | Cpl. Melissa A. Latty

Ever wonder who printed that copy of the 2nd Marine Logistics Group Warriors Log you’re reading?

What about that program from the retirement ceremony you attended last month?

Where do Marines go when they need pamphlets, programs, newsletters, or business cards printed? They go to Maxine Jordan, 2nd MLG print shop manager, for all of their mass printing needs.

Jordan prints thousands of copies every week while supporting the Marines of 2nd MLG.

“I love supporting the troops,” said Jordan. “I feel like I’m doing something important.”

Jordan operates on two production printers, which can print up to 110 full-color pages per minute. At more than 15 ft. in length, they take up more than half the length of her shop.

“You can really tell the difference in something you print at home or in your office and what comes out of these printers,” she said, alluding to the crisp, vibrant appearance of the ink.

Jordan started out working at a Xerox print shop in Raleigh, N.C., and transferred to Camp Lejeune in January 2008. Jordan has more than 12 years of printing experience.

“I love my job and I love coming to work,” she said. “My goal is to one day own my own print shop once I’m retired.”

Next time you’re at a corporal’s course graduation, change of command ceremony or reading the latest issue of the Warriors Log, admire the work of Maxine Jordan.
