2017 Sep 12 Thanking the D.A.R. Chapter

The final stop on our Thank You Tour was at the Color Country Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution monthly meeting.  They are now meeting in the American Legion Post 90 building in St. George.  We thanked them with a Certificate of Appreciation, an 8x10 glossy photo of all the 2017 Devil Pup graduates after the graduation ceremony at Camp Pendleton - and with super catchy big smiles from five outstanding Devil Pup graduates.  SMSgt. Thomas from Pine View's AFJROTC program attended, as did Col. Field from Dixie High School AFJROTC.  A big thank you to the parents who made time in the middle of their day to bring the Pups to this event.  Thank you Pine View and Dixie AFJROTC programs for attending this thank you event as part of your school day.

Thank you Color Country Chapter NSDAR.
We appreciate your support!

Devil Pup graduates!  Awards Night will be Wednesday, August 9th, at the Pizza Factory in Heritage Square, 2 West St. George Boulevard, St. George.  The time is 6:30 p.m.  Pizza Factory is again giving us special pricing at only $8 per person.  Family and friends are welcome, but please let Donna Toole know how many you will bring so the restaurant can prepare enough food for endless pizza, salad, those famous bread sticks and sodas.
 Devil Pups please wear your Devil Pup uniforms.

Congratulations, Devil Pup Graduates

We graduated another 10 Devil Pups this past weekend.  Attached is a video clip of the Pups marching onto parade ground. There is a little wind noise - very windy day at Camp Pendleton.

Not only did we have 10 Pups graduate, Alena Lorentzen captured one of the few PFT awards.  They must score a perfect 400 to earn this award. 
Alena is second from left in the front row.  I asked them to remove their caps so we could see their buzz cuts, but some of the guys must have felt chilly!!!

A new Individual Award was added to the Devil Pup Graduation Ceremony this year.  It's called "The Colonel Bill Toole Award" and is presented for demonstration of extraordinary persistence and includes a $200 cash gift.

Congratulations to all ten of you!  See you at Awards Night (details to follow).

Congratulations, 2017 Devil Pups.  And congratulations to Alena Lorentzen for her special award for PFT excellence.  


Here are the 2017 graduates.  Jan Veltkamp made the St. George guide on to make us even more professional!  Thanks, Jan!☺

A new award was added this year - the Colonel Bill Toole award for exceptional persistence - it carries a $200 cash award.

We will announce Awards Night at the Pizza Factory as soon as I can get that coordinated with the restaurant.

Good job, 2017 pups.  Well done!
