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

We have a Regular But SPECIAL Young Marine Drill This Saturday, July 24th, 2021.

One of our WWII War Marines has passed away at the age of 94.
His Funeral will be at 0900, Saturday, July 24th at the Greenwood Cemetery, University & White Settlement Road.  We, as Young Marines, need to show our respect for our Military Veterans and Fellow Marines.

We will need one or two additional Drivers for this Event/Trip.  Gunny Richey, as a Good Marine, has to do Security Duty at his Church.

Then we will travel over to the Warren G. Alberts Military History Center. Dorothy Lane & 7th Street near the Will Roger Complex.

We will return to the Drill Hall/Bus barn and have Noon Chow there.
All Young Marines & Recruits will arrive with new Hair Cuts! 
  Young Marines are to arrive in Full Utilities with National YM T Shirt.  Their 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 Recruit 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.  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!
