Plan of the Day (POD)

‚ÄčSent June 18th, 2019
Howdy Marines, Staff, Young Marines, Recruits, & Our Parents!
We have a regular Young Marine Drill this Saturday, June 22nd, 2019.
First Item Word was passed during last Drill about a possible Encampment June 28th thru 30th, 2019.
  Due to Weather for Abilene area, we will not be participating in this event!  Temperature is scheduled in the 90’s, plus possible thunderstorms.  The last time the Battalion had an event like this, by the 2nd day, there were Heat Exhaustion cases and event was cancelled due to extreme temperature!
  I do not want our Young Marines endangering their health!
  We will look at having Swim Qualification again at Still Water Retreat soon!
  Young Marines are to arrive in PT Gear with National YM T Shirt, their Utilities on hangers, Covers, Boots, 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, Red Covers, & Guide Books.
