Another Tuesday Morning Drill!

Feb
25

During Tuesday drill the Battalion had two informative briefs and a message from our BSM. The first brief was about the Command Climate Assessment, ran by LT Gardner. The battalion learned the importance of this survey and how it can benefit and improve our NROTC unit. Battalion members should take this seriously and give good constructive feedback.

Naval Leadership Weekend at the University of Notre Dame was last weekend and MIDN Westmoreland, Morris, Gaylor, and Pond briefed the battalion on some of the leadership lessons that were covered.

The End Is In Sight

Feb
21

As winter quarter starts winding down, the last of the mid terms and the upcoming finals have many of the Midshipmen wishing for spring break. NW Navy rosters have been finalized and many battalion members are looking forward to the trip and the competition. Drill this week was an NCIS brief for those with security clearances which proved very insightful. Bulldog engaged in a swamp land nav course designed by SSgt Gentry and SSgt Phansiri, which saw the Midshipmen putting to the test what they had learned in the classroom. Good Luck with the rest of the quarter battalion!

Good Luck With Mid-Terms!

Drill this week was split, with the Navy options receiving a brief from LT Kigin on the MH-60R and MH-60S, and from LT Ford about the P-3C Orion and the P-8 Poseidon. The briefs taught the Navy Option Midshipmen about the functionality of the different aircraft. Useful information no matter what the intended community is. Meanwhile the Marine Options mustered in Clark Hall for a class on Land Navigation. The Midshipmen learned how to use protractors, compasses, and maps to plot grid coordinates and shoot azimuths.

Veterans Day!

Once again the Battalion observed Veterans Day by participating in the University of Washington Veterans Day Ceremony. The Midshipmen participated in a joint service formation with cadets from the other branches, which fell in on the symbolic 11th hour of the 11th day. The Battalion was privileged with speeches from Sen. Patty Murray, UW President Michael Young, Capt. Melin, and Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award recipient Charles Matthaei. For many of the Freshmen this was their first Veterans Day in uniform and helped showcase the importance of remembering those who came before.
