For any new Marines who reported this week:

If you received no response from your Marine since they reported, then this is a good sign they have picked up to begin training. Yes, no news is good. :) Check out the 'unofficial training schedule' listed above.
According to the schedule though the next pick up is 6/9 for Hotel Co.

March is National Reading Month!

The EGA Shop is reducing inventory, so a lot of books are on clearance. Now is the time to shop... :)

For anyone's Marine getting ready to report this week here are some packing tips from a veteran Marine with 5 Marines.
The small ditty bag is a good carry on :) so be sure his orders are with him and uniform to change into once he arrives. This way if bags get delayed he will be prepared to check into MCT.

Enjoy your Marine's last few moments of his leave time!!
