2007 Regimental Encampment
On July 31, 2007 through August 5, 2007, our Tri-City Young Marines participated in a wonderful Encampment. Originally starting out as a Battalion Encampment at Camp Rilea in Warrenton, Oregon, it was upgraded to a Regimental Encampment due to the number of Units that arrived and the areas they represented. As you will see by some of the photos on this page, our Young Marines participated in many amazing activities. Our Unit once again made us proud..but I won't tell you why yet, you'll have to look through these photos and figure it out for yourselves. OORAH TRI-CITY YOUNG MARINES!
SSgt. Bowman received the honor of being assigned the status of Sgt.Major, overseeing all the Young Marines in attendance. Regimental Commander, Mr. Wilson, gives instructions to Bowman, who passes the word to his lower ranking officers for implementation.
The following pictures were taken at the Cape Disappointment Motor Lifeboat School in Illwaco, Washington. The weather was gorgeous and our Young Marines experienced seeing a lot of things most people don't get a chance to see...a great day for a boat ride!
Staff member and head photographer, Mr. Tonda enjoying the day. Mrs. Tonda avoided the camera (she was behind the lens). We appreciate their photos..thanks for your support of our website.

This boat, the Triumph, is one of two the Coast Guard has, both of which are located at Cape Disappointment.
The following photos will show you several of the obstacles our Young Marines encountered AND completed during their Regimental Encampment. This was held on the training grounds at Camp Rilea.
Executive Officer, Mr. Haeg, taking a close look at things.
Staff member, Mr. Nash, was one of our "hands on" instructors, demonstrating several of the obstacles on the course.
Our newest Staff member, Mr. Barnes, demonstrating his rope swinging abilities. Tarzan needs to take lessons from you sir.
The following photographs were taken at Fort Stevens in Warrenton, Oregon. Fort Stevens was a coastal defense installation. This would make a cool home, wouldn't it?
Towards the end of the Encampment, it was time for the Drill Competitions. These photos show our Young Marines in great form. We ranked #2 in the Unarmed Drill Team competition and achieved the rank of #1 in the Color Guard competition! OORAH TRI-CITY YOUNG MARINES, WE'RE PROUD OF YOU!!
Regimental Group photo at Cape Disappointment. What an awesome turnout for a great Encampment.
Another fabulous Encampment came to a close. This was the first Regimental Encampment that our Tri-City Young Marines have attended. We hope it won't be our last. Many of our Young Marines reconnected with aquaintances they've met before. There are always new Young Marines to meet and it is an honor to take part in these types of activities. A special thank you goes out to all our Staff that were involved in making this happen. We couldn't have done this without your dedication and support! Until next year...carry on.
