Plan of the Day (POD)

Sent June 22nd, 2021

Howdy Marines, Staff, Young Marines, Recruits, & Our Parents!

We have a Regular Young Marine Drill This Saturday, June 26th, 2021.

  As I have said at the last two YM Meeting, the Still Waters Retreat would like us to Present a Flag Retirement Ceremony for their "Camp Wednesday" open house for Kids.
  They would like us to present the Retirement ceremony on July 14th at 1000.
I need to know how many Young Marines I can depend on for this Community Service.
  Remember, this last Encampment could have cost us up to $200 at a Texas State Park, and that would be without use of a swimming pool for our swim qual.
  We can arrange transportation for some of the Young Marines & Recruits!
The Young Marines will come in Utilities for the ceremony and then change over to civilian attire.  The program is from 0900 till 1700 (5 PM)
  Please Respond with requested Info!
This is our way of paying back to Still Waters Retreat!

All Young Marines & Recruits will arrive with new Hair Cuts! 
  Young Marines are to arrive in PT Gear, with National YM T Shirt.  Their Utilities on hangers, Covers, Boots (Shined) Boot Bands and Guide Books
  Recruits will arrive in Utilities (If they have them) with National Red T Shirts.  If not, they will arrive in Blue Jeans.  They will bring their PT Gear on Hangers, Rec Covers, & Guide Books.

More to Follow!
Remember to E-Mail or Text me if your Young Marine or Recruit is going to miss YM Drill or Special Event.  This will constitute an Excused Absence for the Perfect Attendance Award if not over 3 Excused Absences.
Also Remember, Your Young Marine Needs to be in Attendance at least 2 Drills prior to any Field Trip or
  Encampment in order to accompany the Young Marines on scheduled Field Trips or Encampments.
Recruits, in addition to this requirement, will be qualified by Registered Adults as to ability to act properly
  as a Young Marine!
