The Navasota Valley Young Marines will be having registration for new recruits on Sat., July 11. The Young Marines is a non-profit youth organization that helps teach our youth how to be better citizens, leaders, and community service. They also teach drug awareness, first aid/CPR, land navigation, swimming, fire prevention, and many other skills. This youth group is for kids ages 8-18, and is especially helpful for our youth thinking about joining the military after graduation. They don’t recruit for any specific service, but do teach basic close order drill, and rank structure.
