Operation Arctic Eagle is one of the more fun and interesting operations that we participate in. The operation takes place at Camp Grayling where our personnel will be interacting in various roles with the US Marines during their annual training. The details of our participation is fluid as scenarios change, but we may be providing opposition forces.
8, 9, 10 April 2016 @ Camp Grayling. Personnel should arrive between 1500 HRS and 1900 HRS on Friday, 8 April 2016. National Guard personnel will brief our troops at 1930 HRS on Friday, 8 April 2016. Barracks will be provided.
Personnel will be participating in the operations in various different numbers throughout the entire day of Saturday, 09 April 2016. We will also be participating on Sunday, 10 April 2016, and should be finsihed between 1400 HRS and 1600 HRS. Persons who need to leave earlier on Sunday can do so. We are working to be flexible for persons with demanding schedules.
Food will be provided Saturday and Sunday, but I would personally recommend that you bring a couple snacks and some extra water. Water is also provided, but it doesn’t hurt to be well prepared. Because we do not know what the weather will do we recommend dressing in layers. Be prepared to be in a very cold environment.
If you plan to participate, please email SSG Wendy Gilbert via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. She needs to know the number of people who will be participating by 25 March 2016, if possible. This is important so that housing and food can be arranged. If you miss the 25 March 2016 deadline, you can still participate, but PLEASE let her know by the 25th–if possible.
Also, there is a form that needs to be filled out and returned to SSG Gilbert, which will be posted below. It is encouraged that you complete this and send it to SSG Gilbert by 25 March 2016. In any event, SSG Gilbert will need your driver’s license number before you arrive on post.
Travel orders will be sent out by 04 April 2016.
