FTAP Brief for FY 13 marines
GySgt. Jimmy Spence will be conducting a FTAP brief for all FY 13 Marines on May 17th at 0800 at the Base Theater. The purpose of this brief is to educate Marines about reenlistment procedures, incentives, and boat spaces. If you have Marines that are saying they are â€œgetting outâ€ I still highly encourage them to attend for the information they will receive just in case they change their mind.
