» Attendance «

Unit personnel must attend a minimum of 75 percent of all scheduled drills to maintain “satisfactory attendance.”  Members who fail to maintain satisfactory attendance, and who do not respond to counseling and other measures to improve attendance, may be dropped from the program at the discretion of the unit commanding officer.  For reasons beyond their control – illness, family plans, etc. – members will miss drills.  Absence for valid reasons, as determined by the unit commanding officer, are excused drill and will not be counted as missed drills in determining satisfactory attendance.     Parent’s Handbook »
