Hi everyone. Although face to face classes have stopped, the Army doesn't stop for anything. The Mountain Ranger Battalion (MRB) continues to roll, mitigating risk to keep our cadets and cadre safe. I wanted to update you on three points:
1. We're still here! Don't feel isolated, you're still a part of the MRB family. Your cadre are still available, just by email instead of stopping by their offices. Your instructor's email is in your syllabus, and email addresses for any cadre can be found under their picture on our Faculty and Staff page. Reach out to your friends in the Battalion via social media, and remember to keep your Cadet chain of command informed.
2. Fight the rumor mill and watch our Facebook page for updates - we will be using it as our primary platform for getting information to the Battalion. With the strain on campus IT from unexpectedly supporting an entire university's remote learning efforts, it's our most flexible method of keeping information flowing in a timely manner. This is intended to augment, not replace, the Cadet chain of command. Information will continue to be passed down through them as well.
3. Here's where we're at:
a. Classes through remote learning at all our universities through the end of the semester.
b. No face to face cadre/cadet interaction until at least April 6th.
c. Summer camps: multiple courses of action for both Advanced Camp and Basic Camp are still being examined, no decision has been made yet. We know they will look differently than last year, but not how or how long they will be yet.
This is obviously a dynamic situation. Continue to stay safe and stay in touch and we'll weather this storm together.
