Memorial Day Events
Thank you to all Tustin Young Marines and parents that helped make these events a great success!
Classroom Safety Course
Saturday 4 June - 0800 to 1200
Cost - $25
Uniform - Cammies, Boots, Covers
Classroom portion of rifle training is set for Saturday, 4 June at the ARF base in Costa Mesa.
Classroom instruction must be completed first, shooting .22 LR rifles will be at a later date.
You must take the classroom safety course if you want to go shooting, even if you took it last year. No exceptions!
Our instructors are a military family, one son was just deployed back to Iraq, the other son is graduating UCLA this month and then commissioning, so we had to move the date up to get it done.
Parents - This is an optional event. If your Young Marine is less than 12 years old, you must stay on deck for this classroom teaching and at the shooting range. This is a insurance regulation.
Parents - If you want to take the course and shoot with your Young Marine you are welcome to sign up. You must take the safety course if you wish to shoot. Same cost - $25.00
