ASM Mr. Foley would like to suggest to the Bugler, Historian, and Chaplains Aide that the end of their leadership term if fast approaching - that they may wish to give some thought to reviewing Leadership Responsibilities & Goals, coordinating ahead of time with the SPL to make sure you can get on the meeting addenda for any photo presentations bugle playing, or Emblems of Faith Presentations or the like that you may be preparing. If you would like to meet at the end of the term to review and sign off on leadership, please be prepared and reach out to me to set a time to meet.
