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.

Spring Break


Winter Quarter finals are over and now the Husky Battalion is on Spring Break. Last Friday, 2nd Lieutenant Greenslade was commissioned and Brigadier General Wise was the guest of honor. BGen Wise gave a short speech on a Marine officer's obligation to his marines prior to handing 2nd LT Greenslade his commission and administering the Oath of Office.

Have a great break Battalion! Recharge the batteries so we can hit the books hard in the Spring!

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.
