OUR ANNUAL NJROTC AWARDS NIGHT is this Tuesday, May 14 th at 5:30pm in the SCC. All cadets are expected to attend. Uniform is Naval Service Uniform for PO1 and below, and Service Dress Blue for Chiefs and Officers. This is a summative grade, because an important part of Naval tradition is for the ship’s company to assemble to honor those who are recognized.
2. PLEASE RETURN YOUR ROTC UNIFORM ON WEDNESDAY unless you are helping on the Memorial Day Observance at Shelter Cove Veterans Park on Monday May 27 th. If you are helping, please sign up on the instructor door sheet.
3. A HEARTFELT THANK YOU to our outgoing Commanding Officer Amanda Dickerson, Executive Officer AndreaMoreno, and Operations Officer Karl Boatright! Thanks to you, our unit was actively and efficiently run all spring.
4. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEW COMMANDING OFFICER C/LCDR ELIZABETH HALL! You have worked hard to achieve this challenging position. We have every confidence that you will do a fantastic job.
5. BASIC LEADERSHIP TRAINING CAMP IS COMING! Our annual leadership camp will be June 3-5 here in the ROTC spaces. Cost is $25 cash payable on the first day of the camp to our Booster Club President Mrs. Sorensen. This is a great way to gain valuable leadership training and is a prerequisite to be promoted above petty officer, be a platoon chief, or attend the NJROTC Leadership Academy. If interested, see SgtMaj Wyatt for more information.
6. THIS WILL BE OUR LAST PLAN OF THE WEEK FOR THIS SCHOOL YEAR! Make sure you provide the instructors contact information if you want to be involved this summer. We have a BLT coming up in June, a Drill camp in July, and we’ll need motivated cadets to help around the school starting August 1 st

THIS DAY IN NAVY HISTORY

November 12, 1942 was the first day of fighting in Naval Battle of Guadalcanal.  U.S. Marines landed on the Solomon Islands in August of 1942 and combat was constant. But the three days between November 12 – 15 were the final climax and a turning point of the campaign.



  

Commander's Quote 

  
If you think of yourselves as helpless and ineffectual, it is certain that you will create a despotic government to be your master.  The wise despot, therefore, maintains among his subjects a popular sense that they are helpless and ineffectual. Frank Herbert, American science fiction writer






  

Sgt Maj Words of Wisdom

  ​​
Act well your part, there all the honor lies. He who does something at the head of one Regiment, will eclipse him who does nothing at the head of a hundred. - Abraham Lincoln in response to General David Hunter’s complaint of commanding only 3,000 men during the Civil War.
