Genoa native, Brig. Gen. Niel E. Nelson can be seen in the image above giving opening remarks during a two-day commander’s conference at the Surfside on Camp Kinser in Japan. The conference brought together 3rd Marine Logistics Group subordinate command unit leaders from duty stations across the Asia-Pacific region, including Okinawa, mainland Japan and Hawaii, to discuss numerous topics. Nelson is the commanding general of 3rd MLG, III Marine Expeditionary Force.
“This conference is a great way to bring all of the commanders and senior enlisted together to talk about the issues which affect our personnel, our mission and our equipment,” said Brig. Gen. Niel E. Nelson, a Genoa, Nevada native and the commanding general of 3rd MLG, III MEF. “We’ve changed the training plan to be more aggressive in field training environments, so they are ready to go out the door when called.”
