Just because that's the way it is, doesnt mean that's the way it has to be...ACHIEVEMENT Lies In The Honest Endeavor To DO YOUR BEST Under ALL Circumstances, Knowing That On Any Given Day, Intense PERSONAL EFFORT May Be The Only Thing That Separates YOU From Your Competition. If you are trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I have had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, dont turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
CHANGE TO ACHIEVE
|DISTINGUISHED UNIT 2014-2013-2012- 2011- 2010-2009-2006-2005-2004-2003|
We believe that individual commitment to a group effort is what makes our team work. Coming together in the beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success. Besides the nice thing about our teamwork is that we always have someone on our side. Thanks to all of our parents and supporters; without you we could not have made it. Commander and Gunny, YOU ROCK
