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.

Congratulations 2015 Devil Pup Candidate Winners!
Here are the results of our several weeks of PFT for 2015
Devil Pup Camp at Camp Pendleton in Southern California. Camp dates are July 23 – Aug 1:
4-Pilimai, Konrad 5-Baird, Drake
on your hard-earned accomplishment. We
could see the improvements from week to week.
Winners’ highest scores were between 296 and 365, out of a possible 400. You and your parents will soon receive a
packet of information with directions to Camp Pendleton for August 1st
when they come to pick you up after graduation.
Also, a Devil Pup “mentor” who is a member of the local Marine Corps
League will contact you shortly to get together with you because there are
several more forms that must be completed prior to camp for your official “Service
Record Book.” He or she will be your
go-to person until camp, or you can e-mail questions to Donna Toole, the Devil
Pup Coordinator. Begin working on your
$100 donation toward your camp experience – there are only 7 weeks till camp –
your Devil Pup Mentor can help with that!
It is also time to have your parents begin looking into hotel
reservations as close to Camp Pendleton/Oceanside as they can so they can be on
time at the graduation ceremony which starts at 12:00 p.m. sharp on August 1st.
Good job, future Devil Pups!!! PFT NEXT SATURDAY!! SAME TIME, SAME PLACE!
