Following An Eventful Week!


This week, the Husky Battalion was briefed on Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) during Tuesday's drill. Sexual Assault is a serious problem and we must do everything we can to prevent such actions. We have the tools to prevent and respond to sexual assault. The more people who get involved, understand, and practice SAPR, the sooner we can "move to the left" of the problem. As leaders, we have an obligation to step in whenever we see potential sexual harassment and/or assault case that may arise. Do not be afraid; find the courage, speak up, and take action!

Happy Halloween!


As of last week, the Husky Battalion initiated the Battalion Mentorship Program. This program is an exciting opportunity for all Midshipmen to learn more about the Battalion and the direction they want to take as future Battalion leaders and officers. This week, the Battalion received a brief on high-intensity training from an IMA trainer. This information is helpful to direct PT workouts, but make sure that you properly assess your abilities so as to not cause injury. Last but not least, the Birthday Ball begins tomorrow at 1800 at the HUB.

Spring Quarter Begins


Spring quarter has been in session for about three weeks now, and the battalion has been as busy as ever. On Saturday, April 13th, the Husky Battalion had it's first ever Barks and Recreation Day. This event was successful thanks to the hard work and planning of the Gold Department. Some highlights of the day were the performance of the Regulation Drill team at Red Square and the Students vs. Staff volleyball game. The Reg. Drill Team continued the nearly 90+ year tradition of close-order drill at the University of Washington.

Happy President's Day!


This President's Day weekend marks the end of winter quarter midterms at the University of Washington. Last Tuesday, we had our semi-annual change of command ceremony where MIDN Greenslade was relieved by MIDN Crow as Battalion Commander. On Wednesday, we received word that Northwest Navy this year would be cancelled due to budget cuts. A local event will take the place of NWN, on April 13th, to showcase the hard work and talent of the many teams the Husky Battalion has been preparing.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Northwest Navy team practices are in full swing now and the Winter quarter at the University of Washington is well underway. This week, the Husky Battalion can look forward to a presentation by a representative from the Navy Federal Credit Union during drill on Tuesday morning. Some classes already have midterms starting this week as well. Study hard now Husky Battalion, so that we can reap the benefits later. "Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better." -Martin Luther King Jr.
