NOTES


1. A LOT OF AWESOME EVENTS ARE COMING IN THE SPRING! The Martin Luther King Jr. Parade, the Military Ball,
the Billy Goat, Basic Leadership Training, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the Blue Angels Air Show, to name just a
few. We strongly encourage all cadets to continue to be involved this spring even if they are not taking ROTC as
one of their classes.
The best way to do that is come down to ROTC during ILT, read the Plan of the Week, look on the instructor door
and the unit calendar for upcoming events, and talk to spring cadets to find out what’s going on. It’s up to you!
2. WELCOME TO OUR NEWEST CADETS! We expect your best attitude and effort for you to become successful
members of our program. Learn from our awesome cadet leaders and make sure you become involved at every
opportunity.
3. THE ANNUAL MILITARY BALL IS SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16 TH ! 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.
4. GET YOUR SPORTS PHYSICAL TOMORROW IN THE CAFETERIA AT 5PM! BRING $20. You’ll need it for all spring
sports obviously, but it’s also required for lots of ROTC activities like the Orienteering Team, PT Team, and Basic
Leadership Training. You’ll also need one if you want to take the Physical Fitness test and earn your long-
sleeved PT shirt with your name on the sleeve. Wow!
5. GET YOUR UNIFORM READY! All returning cadets see Commander this week to make sure you have a complete
and well-fitting uniform. We won’t wear it this week, but next week you all want to look sharp for our first
COMPANY FORMATION of the new year on Wednesday January 16 th during ILT.
6. OUR ANNUAL MIDDLE SCHOOL RECRUITING EVENT is next Friday January 18 th during 2 nd block. All interested
cadets please sign up outside the instructor office. This is an important opportunity to make a positive impact
on our unit enrollment next year, as well as earn your Recruiting Ribbon!

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.
