Printable Equipment List
Just a tip from the Commander: It's not rocket science.  If it's not on this list I think of it as contra-band.  If I say the uniform is tan t-shirt, black shorts, and black socks, and I walk out on the field and see purple t-shirt and beige sweat pants, and orange socks, I am going to assume that someone seriously wanted to offend me!  Is that understood? Because that is not the definition of "Excellence in all we do" now is it? And I take that core value seriously.    -Lt Col Dilda
