NOTES

OUR ANNUAL FOOD DRIVE FOR DEEP WELL starts tomorrow and ends December 17th .  Bring in canned and dry goods for your platoon.  Each 10 items you bring in earns you 1 hour of unit service and goes towards your platoon’s total for the food drive competition.  Winning platoon gets a pizza party! Food Drive Platoons are as follows: 2nd and 3rd block count as 1st platoon.  4th block upperclassman cadets (except Lizzie) count as 2nd platoon.  All 1st year cadets and their Platoon Commander count as 3rd platoon.  Good luck and get cracking!
OUR MONTHLY COMPANY FORMATION is next Wednesday 5 December.  First, we will start the day with a formal Morning Colors ceremony at 0800 at the school flagpole.   Then during ILT, we will have our official change of command and introduce our new Commanding Officer for the spring semester, Amanda Dickerson.  Starting this month, all officers and chiefs will wear their Service Dress Blue uniform on Company Formation Day.  As before, promotions and awards will be presented, and a pizza lunch will be provided by our awesome Booster Club.  Yay!

SEE NOTE #1.  All officers and chiefs who have not been issued a Service Dress Blue uniform should see Commander this week.

ATTENTION ALL CADETS! Next week will be our last uniform inspection day for the semester.  We need to collect uniforms after Wednesday of all cadets who will not be in the unit in the spring (or who will not be involved in unit events like drill team).


THE ASVAB career exploration test is being offered next Thursday 6 December for all upperclassman cadets.  It will be in the ROTC spaces during 1st and 2nd block and is an excused absence for all sophomore, junior, and senior cadets.

WE ARE HOSTING OUR ANNUAL ORIENTEERING MEET next Saturday December 8th at the Waddell Mariculture Center in Bluffton.  Commander needs lots of motivated cadets to help at the start and finish tables, help with concessions, and help with other important duties.  Please sign up outside the instructor office.

THE ANNUAL MILITARY BALL IS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16TH!  Please put it on your calendar and be on the lookout for the official invitations.  It is our most awesome and fun night of the year and you don’t want to miss it.

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 of the Week

  
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.
