      Mr. Fields,

      Thank you for the message! Welcome to retirement and the highly competitive JROTC drill world, brother!

      As you can see from the website, there is quite a bit of information here, many free downloads on the Resources page, and my books are linked to in the store.

      My best initial advice is to read, read, read and get spun up on the intracacies of TC 3-21.5 and AR 840-10. Then, ensure your unit has the proper equipment, get the senior members of each team to read the manuals, and have them get the squad leaders and whole colors team to read as well.

      For exhibition drill, there’s a bunch to learn, again: reading is your best friend.

      Shoot me an email, drillmaster001@gmail.com, and we can work details over time, if you’d like.
