MCMS’s Young Marines Activities
By: YM/PFC Quintasia Lytle
On January 31, 2018 and on February 1, 2018, PFC Dedreon Knight taught the class a lesson about alcohol. He presented a poster on why young people drink and distributed handouts to his classmates. PFC Knight did a good job keeping the students engaged with discussions on why people drink, why people should not drink and asked students to encourage everyone not to drink. On February 6 and February 13, YM/PFC Yagaira Martinez did a presentation to the class about effects of smoking. Her poster was entitled “You and Your Teen and Smoking.” She informed the students on the statistics of how many young people under the age of 18 smoke and the short and long terms effects from smoking. Master Sgt. N. Lowman would like to thank the students for doing a wonderful job.
What Veterans Day Means To Us
By: YM/ PFC Haylie Briscoe
On Saturday, November 11, 2017, we the Mitchell County Young Marines were asked the question, what does Veterans Day mean to you? Several of our Young Marines including myself gave an answer to the question. I think Veterans Day means honoring those who protected our freedom and risk their lives for us every day. YM/Pvt Antonio Kelly said that “Veterans Day is the day that we honor and celebrate our troops for keeping us safe.” Another YM/Pvt Jeremiah Florence stated that “Veterans Day is a day we honor the veterans that fought for our liberty and freedom. Although our answer to the question is a little different, we know that Veterans Day is observed to honor all veterans. As a unit, we placed a wreath at Veterans Park in Albany, Georgia and attended a ceremony for veterans at The American Legion Post 30. The Mitchell County Young Marines salute all military service men and women for their dedicated service.
