Parker County Young Marines Homework 3-26-20

Howdy Marines, Staff, Young Marines, Recruits, & Parents/Guardians!!

I hope that this greets all in good health.

Just this evening, I saw that the USA now has more cases of the virus than any other Nation.

Because of this, we won't be meeting no earlier than April 18th when we have a community Service at the Museum and Meachum Field.

And that is if the Hops & Props Event is not cancelled on April 25th.


(I E-Mailed this to all Young Marines yesterday, 3-26, Attached was the first 10 Questions to be answered from their Basic Guide Books. If you didn't get it, let me know and I'll send one to you!)


Because of this, we need to keep our Great Young Marines minds busy so we are starting what one might call as Homework.  

We will be sending about 10 Questions that the Young Marines & Recruits will answer from their Guidebooks.  

The Young Marines will copy the answers from their Guidebooks and try to put them in their own words.


Young Marines can send it back to my by E-Mail or Regular US Mail.


The first Requirement is a one page Report over Drug Demand Reduction (How to say NO to Drugs). by the 4th of April.

This will cover the required Report for March.

Then there will be one report for each month till we can start YM Regular Drill again.


I had to have my computer worked on from the ground up so if you cannot open a document, let me know and I will get it to you one way or the other.
