Veterans' Remembrance Day 2014

                                      The 3rd Annual Veterans Remembrance Day
will be held September 7, 2014 in downtown Indianapolis  on the South steps of the Indiana War Memorial.  453 LED balloons, each representing a fallen Hoosier Veteran lost while on active duty since 9/11 will be released into the night sky.  Indy Honor Flight,  Gold Star Mothers and the Fallen Hoosier Heroes Memorial are strong supporters of this event and helped us make this a truly awesome spectacle for the last two years.  (Visit the photo gallery for pictures of Veterans Remembrance Day 2012 & 2013)  The video above is also from the first year.  If you would like to help with this event, please "contact us" and we would be glad to accept your help.  If you would like to donate, please click on the "Sponsors" page.  All donations are tax deductible.  

Thank you CIYM, CYM, Senator Delph, Joe Venable and all the other guests and volunteers that made this event all come together.  Couldn't do any of it without you. -  Dave Hulett / Unit Commander

COMMUNITY SERVICE:


Community Service is a very important part of being a Young Marine.  Some Young Marines think that once they get their 50 hours of community service in 12 months, and get that ribbon, they are finished. We at Speedway Young Marines consider serving our community, an honor and are proud to say that even though we are only the third largest Unit in Indiana, we had over 3200 hours of combined community service hours last year, smoking the other, larger Units in the State by at least 500 hours. We pride ourselves in helping others and intend on beating our own record in 2014.  If you are a Speedway Young Marine or are having a Speedway Young Marine do some community service for you, please click on the below form, fill it out, get it signed and turn it in.  We will log all valid hours in the database.  



The Speedway Young Marines is a PREMIERE Youth organization for boys AND girls, ages 8 through the completion of high-school.  Our primary focus is DISCIPLINE, LEADERSHIP and TEAMWORK.  We believe that discipline begins in the home and is reinforced by positive influence and a healthy, DRUG-FREE lifestyle.  Speedway Young Marines was awarded BOTH the Marine Corps League's Unit Commendation award AND the Young Marine Unit Commendation from National Headquarters in Washington DC for 2013.  The *Young Marine Unit Commendation award speaks volumes for the Unit to which it is awarded and we will continue to strive to make the best possible environment for you and your kids.  We ARE the best youth organization around, sign up and we'll prove it to you. 


Our next 'Boot-Camp' starts in January 2015.  


* "The Young Marine Unit Commendation is awarded to the Unit that Distinguish themselves by performing extreme meritorious service

rendering the unit outstanding compared to other units performing

similar service". - YM Awards manual

Speedway Young Marines have scheduled the Summer Encampment   It will be August 15 - August 17 and the cost will be $30 per Young Marine. The location is Bradford Woods and the theme is.................a secret!   

If you liked or even heard about the Zombie Apocalypse theme, you will surely enjoy the theme this year.  Sure to bring you laughs, smiles and memories for a life-time, Mr. Gurley will be in charge of "imagination design" once again.  If he requires your assistance, he will come to YOU.  As with the winter encampment, we will cook all meals over the open fire.  The only difference is, the weather will be a LOT warmer and we will have working bathrooms, showers and other sources of running water.  Start planning now, you will NOT want to miss this camp-out.  

Event planning has already begun.
