Good Evening Family and Friends,
Today your Marines completed their second and final Live Fire Exercise. It was a fantastic display of skill and learned knowledge. We took a moment to get some administrative stuff out of the way and I figured those spouses, parents, grand parents and friends would enjoy seeing their loved ones make their first move up in the Corps. Yep! You guessed it. We had the privilege of halting the days firing to promote your Marine to the rank of Private First Class (PFC). Enjoy the pictures and hopefully we see you next week for graduation.
Yesterday was the first time your Marines of Class 3-18 were exposed to the rigorous techniques and procedures detailing their duties on the gunline during fire missions. It was a culmination of all the elements of artillery they have come to understand these last couple weeks. Today, they will do it again, but I will not be for practice. This time it is for real, rounds will fly down range today! STEEL RAIN is coming.

Good Early Morning Friends and Parents of the Marines of MCCC 1-18, this morning marked a career transition for some of the Marines, it is the first of November and so we carry on with promotions. A select few were promoted to the rank of Lance Corporal, but most Marines reached that first stepping stone to a collar full of black stripes with cross rifles, diamonds and maybe one day bursting bombs in the middle. The promotion to the rank of Private First Class (PFC) might seem trivial to some because they never earned the right to wear it but for others who fought through and reached this step, it was a great day. We at the MCCC schoolhouse are proud of the new PFCs and hope it gives them a new desire to do good things, set the example, lead strong and firm and above else, strive to become that future Sergeant, Staff Sergeant and maybe one day Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps. Semper Fidelis Marines!
Friends and Family, your Marines of MCCC Class 1-18 have been very busy these last 2 weeks. They have taken 2 of their 3 composition evaluations, a 155mm ammunition handling practical application and identification evaluation and experienced the destructive power of the M777A2 during their 1st of 2 live fire events. They are developing a new appreciation for the life of an 0811 in and out of the field environment. They will be getting prepared this weekend for their 2nd live fire event this coming Monday, the 30th of October and promotions on the 1st of November where some of the Marines will move up in the ranks and join other PFCs and LCPLs in their soon to be MOS. Stay tuned for more updates, pictures and calendar dates for graduation and Golden Gun Award ceremonies. Enjoy the pictures!!
Good morning Parents and Friends of the Marines of class 1-18 at the Marine Corps Cannonneer School, we have officially been in class for 2 weeks and the students are well on their way to developing a keen understanding of the operations and procedures for their future MOS of 0811. They have been put to the test both physically and mentally thus far taking their first of three composition evaluations, a practical application evaluation consisting of 5 different events, all with their own procedures, ditties and techniques. They have also taken the first of three attempts at the MOS Specific Physical Assessment (MSPA) test. So far each students seems to be accepting the knowledge and proving through these evaluations that they are on their way to becoming a mighty Artillerymen. Keep posted for updates as they come, future dates to look forward to and more pictures.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are glad to announce that Wednesday, August 16, 2017 Marine Corps Cannoneer School will be conducting the graduation ceremony for Class 7-17. The Marines will be seated at 12:45 pm for a beginning time of 1300 (1:00 pm). The graduation will be held at Snow Hall, Fort Sill, Oklahoma in room 215. If you need assistance finding the location you can ask the gate guards when entering the post. Come and join us on the day these Marines become a part of the Fleet Marine Force and obtain their very sought after MOS of 0811. Look forward to seeing you all there. Direct messaging for any questions is the quickest way to get answers so don't hesitate. Semper Fidelis
Today is the final run through of all the techniques and procedures the Marines of Class 7-17 have learned for the emplacement, firing and displacement of the M777A2 Howitzer. Tomorrow 8 Aug 2017 these Marines will experience first hand how technology has advanced our weapons into a new age by laying, firing and displacing using the DFCS. Rounds will fly tomorrow and we will bring Steel Rain down upon our enemys!! (Well mountains for now). Stay tuned for more updates for the future and more specifically about the date, time and location of graduation for class 7-17.
Today, the Marines of class 7-17 got to experience first hand the destruction associated with our MOS. After a week full of practical application evaluations on ammunition handling, fire mission procedures and ammunition identification they were able to put into action the processes required to send rounds down range. With a total of over 175 155mm high explosive projectiles fired today the students have high expectations of their future in this MOS. Standby for further updates to come to include pictures of the next live fire exercise, final composition and their introduction to the M327 120mm rifled towed mortar (EFSS).
