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).

10 More St. George Area Devil Pups

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!

Practice during holiday week

There will be no practice on the 4th of July, but there will be on Thursday.  Scores have dipped a bit, so we will be taking another PFT to see if you are still qualified and willing to work hard for it.  Count on a Saturday workout, too, just as usual.
