Promotion Ceremony | 02 September
Reported By CPT A.Cantu
As we move into September, we find ourselves in a time of year where we generally have a lull in recruiting due to people returning to school. It is vital that we don't neglect our recruiting efforts! With the launch of Insurgency Sandstorm later this month, we have the potential for great growth in Bravo Company. Alpha Company welcomed all of the new members of Fourth Squad Outlaws.
First Sergeant Gilmore hosted Long Range Precision Course which had one graduate, Joshua Connet. First Sergeant Wendt will be hosting both Warrior Leaders Course (WLC) and Advanced Leaders Course (ALC) later this month, so be sure to watch the forums and sign up for those!
Base Maintenance Operations needs help! Our new website is currently under heavy testing and we are also needing help with Roster Maintenance. If you are dedicated and have attention to detail, please sign up today!
Public Affairs is also looking for personnel from video editors, video recorders, streamers, journalists, and leadership.
Keep up the great work Battleboars, lets have an outstanding September!
