Attention All Hands,
With the winter holidays coming upon us it's time to formally announce the dates of the Winter Stand Down this unit goes through every year. During this time we cease all official activities, both primary and collateral. Some of our members volunteer to continue to do some work throughout this time, but it is not required. Training is not required, and no unit wide operations are held. Promotions are not made and nothing is processed. Though, as I said, some people typically continue to process applications or run Basic Training, etc., but this is entirely voluntary.
The dates for the Unit Winter Stand Down for 2017-2018 are:
Begin: December 10th, 2017
End: January 15th, 2018
This means this is the last cycle of FTX for December, and we will only be conducting one cycle in January. Time to relax. Put the keyboards down and chill. Spend time with your families. You've all earned it. Come back at the start of the next year prepared to get back to work. This is a great unit we have.. next year is going to be the time to show that again.
Enjoy the holidays,
