The Record Book is the official record of your Young Marine’s career with the Young Marines. It’s very important both parent and Young Marine become familiar with this record. In addition to your Young Marine’s record, there are other links to valuable information. The Unit Adjutant, Mrs. Kristine Lewis is responsible for maintaining the accuracy of each YM’s Record Book. Please keep in mind, we are a large unit and data is entered by hand. Be patient, and if you have questions, ask. Any questions should be directed to ADJ@LCYM.ORG.
When you log in, you land on the dashboard of your Young Marine’s Record Book. On the dashboard you’ll find:
- A picture of your YM – (YMs new to the Unit may not have a photo yet)
- Your YM’s rank and name
- Your YM’s current ribbon rack – This could very well be the most reference part of the record book. You will use this every time your YM earns a new ribbon and they will need to change ribbon racks. Also, if you hover your mouse over the ribbon it will tell you what the ribbon is for.
