Buckeye News

Marines, good morning. I wanted to let all of you know that now the Buckeye Newsletter will be on the State’s home page for downloading and or review. I know this may have affected several of your Detachment Marines. The ability for an individual, in each of your detachments, to download the document and post it is very easy and simple to do. There has been a lot of discussion as to the Pro and Cons to doing this, believe me when I say it. However, as I sat here at my desk today getting ready to put it together for the Winter it dawned on me that this document now can grow and include input from all Detachments within the great state of Ohio. Not only events and or articles but pictures as well. It can truly become a tool for the us all to use in retention and recruiting.

I am still awaiting on a few more articles from the staff and you know who you are. I will be posting the newsletter prior to Christmas. With that said I want to wish all of you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
