    LPO - If you do not hear from all squad leaders, you should contact them. Then pass on unit status to OPS, who will than pass on to XO, who will inform CO.

The C.O. wants to warn all hands to NOT be an obstacle to their own advancement. The key to advancing is completing your correspondence courses. You should be turning in AT LEAST one answer sheet every drill. Get 'er done!!!!

  • If you cannot attend a drill, it is your responsibility to notify your Squad Leader prior to the drill.  If you cannot contact the appropriate individual, move up the chain of command until you get someone (i.e. LPO, OPS, XO, CO).
  • You must maintain a 75% or higher attendance record (senior cadets 90% or higher). If your attendance drops, advancement may be delayed, you might not be issued orders to attend trainings, and you may be relieved of senior positions.
