Yesterday, Staff Sergeant Anna Ponsor-DeChant graduated the Martial Arts Instructor Course after 15 rigorous training days of combat conditioning, technique sustainment, and classroom instruction. She is now able to train other Marines in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program in order to advance their belt level.

The Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) is a "whole Marine" program, which emphasizes the complete development of a professional warrior, and is a key component of the ethical warrior concept. MCMAP is designed to improve the warfighting capabilities of individual Marines and units, enhance Marines' self-confidence and esprit de corps, and foster the warrior ethos of the Corps. The focus will be on the personal development of each Marine in a team framework, using a standardized, trainable, and sustainable close combat system with three disciplines: physical, mental and character. MCMAP is not a sport but a distinctively weapons based system, integrating combat equipment, tough realistic training, physical and mental challenges, shared adversity, combat conditioning and tactics typically found in the combat arena.

Congratulations, SSgt Ponsor-DeChant!

Congratulations to Lance Cpl. Renee J. Ried on her selection as the Naval School of Music Student of the Month for November 2019!

Ried, a native of #Newell, #Iowa, enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 2019 to challenge herself mentally, physically and musically. Joining the U.S. Marine Corps allowed her to do all that while still doing what she loves – playing the #flute.

Prior to joining the U.S. Marine Corps, she was a music education major (two semesters) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

She has been a #flute student in our basic course for four months.

While at the Naval School of Music, she has benefited most from private lessons with her #flute instructor, ceremonial band, and learning different march styles.

Her musical influences are Amy Porter, John Bailey, and James Galway.

Her hobbies are baking, running, camping and being outdoors.

“Bravo Zulu” to Lance Cpl. Ried on this noteworthy accomplishment!!
