Mini-Boot Camp!July 10, 2014
The Illinois National Guard is putting together a fantastic experience at their Marseilles Training Center for anyone who wants an inside peek at the military experience. The overnight event includes a barracks stay, morning physical training (not too intense!), and exposure to training on everything from vehicle rollovers to IED's. The idea is to help civilians (including librarians!) become more attuned to the experiences of the veterans they serve. The only requirement is that participants NOT be veterans. The event is July 23-24 and registration deadline is July 15. For more information click here.
