Plan of the Day (POD)

‚ÄčSent April 9th, 2019

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


We have a Young Marine Drill this Saturday April 13, 2019.  We will meet at the Springtown Bus Barn.


All Young Marines and Recruits are to arrive in P.T. gear.  Please check local weather the day before and dress accordingly.  We will be performing our Spring PFT in the morning. 


Bring Utilities on a hanger to change into after the PFT.  If you don’t have utilities, please bring jeans. 

Remember to contact Gunny Bell if your Young Marine / Recruit is going to miss drill.  Unexcused absences will eliminate the possibility for earning the Perfect Attendance Ribbon and failure to attend two drills prior to an encampment will eliminate your Young Marines opportunity to attend said encampment.
