March to the Brazos Powered By Docstoc

          a. ENEMY FORCES:None
          b. FRIENDLY FORCES: Fightin’ Texas Aggies
          a. The Corps of Cadets will conduct their annual march to the Brazos on Saturday
             May 1st, 2010.
          a. Commander’s Intent: Commander’s intent: Safety is paramount. All cadets
             should take care of their feet and hydrate prior to step-off. COs and 1SGs need to
             ensure that their units are physically prepared for the march. Pass-down exercises
             should be motivating, good bull but should not hinder/ negatively contribute to
             any cadets’ return.
          b. Concept of Operation- Each Major unit will depart at staggered times to duncan
             for chow, from the quad and from the beef center back to campus. This will
             ensure that there is no congestion throughout the march.
                  i. Maneuver: This operation will be conducted in 5 phases
                         1. Phase 1: Chow

                     Observatory, the waste water treatment plant, down the road to Whites
                     Creek. Turn right onto Whites Creek, and then take a left onto River
                     Road. Follow River Road to Dogwood, make a right, then another right
                     onto Flyway. Follow Flyway until it dead ends into private
                     property. Cross the private property, the creek, and exit left onto Kemp
                     Road. Turn right into the back entrance of the Beef Center. Return will be
                     a reversal of the route. Outfits will not break formation until through the
