Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy

(March 10, 2014)

 Ladies and Gentlemen,

Due to a few factors that include expanding this program to all of our bases
in the Far East, Winter weather problems etc, we are extending the SLCDA
Application date line to 0800 April 25th  2014.

For those of you who are last minute types and were re-writing your essays
for the 10th time, you have time to take a deep breath. For those of you
over in Okinawa, Mainland Japan and Guam, you have a few weeks to complete
this application.

If you have any questions, please email me at and I
will answer as soon as I can.

Semper Fi,
LtCol Bell and the Staff of 2014 SLCDA
