This should be considered a standard monthly drill for local area Phoenix units.  Orders are required only for cadets and units that are staying in on site berthing.  On site berthing is reserved only for units and cadets that are not located in the Phoenix area. Cadets that live outside the Phoenix Area that require berthing for the weekend, please contact your Commanding Officer as soon as possible so we can make the necessary arrangements.  Local Phoenix Area cadets will need to transport to the site daily.

This training will be made available for signup via Magellan once posted.

Look for code LR-AZ-1901 for NLCC cadets and code RX-AZ-1901 for NSCC Cadets.

Contact your unit training officer for details.
