    Today i saw a picture of my son marching. He had a patch it looked like
    on this left upper arm and he was at the end of the company.

    Anyone know what this might mean.

    Thanks

    Sick chit

    It's an indication that he is being monitored for a mild injury or illness. Just remember~NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. He's healthy enough to participate in some events but has a medical excuse for those things he can't do. :thumb:

    More on the sick chit issue. This was a past response from KP2001 that might help:

    We've seen it on our son's right arm. Any difference between the injury or illness depending on which arm the wrap is placed?

    I'd only suspect right-handed(right-armed) or left-handed(left-armed).. non-dominant arm/side. Whichever side the PC wanted to wear it on.

    :) I did the same thing... Zoomed into Indoc pic... My son is in "H" company.. which one is that?
    Sorry sir, it just means he needed (and got) a haircut.
    Oh.

    Sometimes, analyzing can got 1 level too deep.

    thanks! We'll find out come Sunday's phone call what happened. We saw an awesome picture of him in his swim suit screaming in the bleachers alongside Band Company, so I gather he's fine.
