Regular Training, but at the Aurora Legion!!!  

Arrival Time:  1850
Dismissal Time:  2145
Location:   Aurora Legion, 105 Industrial Parkway North, Aurora
 

Tonight we are training at the Aurora Legion located at 105 Industrial Parkway North.

Dress is C2 Duty, which is your dress uniform but without ties and medals (ribbons only). Seniors can wear their ascots.

This is so we can check uniforms to confirm you are working on them. Lack of improvement means we continue to wear the dress uniform instead of the Field Training Uniform (combats) until we do see improvements.

Cadets without uniforms wear their Black & Whites, but they don't have to be your best as you will be training.

  C2 Duty (no tie)
