1. RETURN YOUR UNIFORMS as soon as possible so that we can take them to the drycleaners and get them ready for the next school year.  Uniform obligation list will be given to the bookkeeper on Friday May 18th.

 2. THE KIWANIS RIB BURN-OFF is this Saturday May 12th and they need our help!  We have the 8am to noon shift and will help the Kiwanis Club set up tents, tables and chairs.  Earn community service hours and eat plenty of ribs too!  Please sign up outside the instructor office.

3. THE ANNUAL POST OFFICE COLLECTION DRIVE is also Saturday.  The postal workers collect donated canned goods left in mail boxes along their routes and bring it back to the Hilton Head Post Office (the one behind the Pantry on Gumtree Road).  That’s where we come in.  They need us to unload the canned goods from their trucks and load them on to the trucks from Deep Well.  We need lots of helping hands from 12noon to 4pm.  Please sign up outside the instructor office.

4. THE ANNUAL NJROTC AWARDS NIGHT is next Tuesday May 15th at 6pm in the SCC.  All cadets are required to attend.  Please be there by 5:30pm.  Wear nice clothes (business casual).  Only the cadet Command Staff and Color Guard will wear their uniform.  A list of cadets receiving an award is posted outside the instructor office and has been sent to our Booster Club so that parents will know if their cadet is being recognized.  Our Booster Club will provide nice refreshments afterwards.

5. THE COLOR GUARD TEAM NEEDS YOU!  This is the time of year when we have a bunch of color guard obligations, including the big Memorial Day observance, the HHE 5th grade promotion, the Middle School graduation, and our own graduation.  It’s not too late to become part of the most active team in ROTC!  See ANDREA MORENO to learn more.

6. SUMMER DRILL CAMP IS COMING!  We will hold a two-week camp starting Monday July 30th to Thursday 9 August, 0900 – 1230.  Cost is $15.00 and includes a drill camp t-shirt, snacks and drinks each day and pizza on both Thursdays.  All cadets who intend to be on the drill team are expected to attend, and all cadets who wish to be platoon commanders or platoon chiefs are strongly encouraged to be there. Any questions see Sergeant Major.



Navy Terminology 
Figurehead - Most of the early  ships had heads of mythology monsters or patrons carved in the bow, hence the term figure head. Large eyes are still painted on the bows of chinese believe that these eyes help them and their ship through a storm by the right of way. Today of course, the term figurehead means someone he or she is in charge, but is not the one "steering the ship."

Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Sgt Maj Words of Wisdom

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
