Devil Pups is a non-profit organization designed to help teens 14-17 from all backgrounds gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their actions. People wonder “Why the name Devil Pups?” The term “Devil Dogs” was used by German soldiers to describe Marines fighting in World War I. The Marines who organized this youth citizenship program chose the term “Devil Pups” to describe the quality of teen who can complete this program.
Devil Pups and Families: Please arrive in uniform by 8:30 a.m. at the Elks Lodge on No. Bluff Street for breakfast with Marines of Utah Dixie Detachment #1270. After breakfast we will move to the meeting room at 9:00 and 2019 Devil Pups will be presented to the Detachment. Your meals are free thanks to the Marines.
Please remember to thank the Marines as they come to shake your hands after the presentation. They provide funds for at least two pups to attend camp each year, so it is a wonderful contribution to our program.
You and your families are free to go after the presentation when the Marines begin their monthly meeting. Please - uniforms as shown below.
