The new edition of the Marine Force Manual has been released. It may be found at: http://www.library.sfi-sfmc.org/downloads/mfm1508.pdf . There are two new uniforms included as well as enough other items of change that I would encourage marines to read the new manual thoroughly.

Next year’s IC is to be in Louisville, KY. I would encourage all of you to seriously consider attending that event. The weekend should be jam-packed with things to do, and the area is positively stuffed with things to do and see. I sincerely hope to see you all there.

With that, I’ll send you back to your previously scheduled programming, already in progress.

Mike
