#BearGoesEverywhere visited Biscailuz regional training campus, in Los Angeles Ca. to watch our boys and girls 14-17 years of age prepare for an arduous 10-day citizenship/leadership “Devil Dogs” program at Marine Corps base, Camp Pendleton, California.
The United States marine corps was given the name "Devil Dogs" in World War I, by enemy troops they were fighting. Due to their accomplishments on the battlefield and "never give up" spirit. The devil pups name is derived from the Marine Corps history. 
The camp has been in existence since 1954. Our department has been able to send exemplary boys and girls, 14-17 years of age, to this 10-day citizenship/leadership program at Marine Corps base, Camp Pendleton, California, because of the generous support from: 
- Association for Los Angeles Deputy Sheriffs 
- Peace officers professional association 
- Sheriff’s boxing team 
- Sheriff’s relief association 
- First city federal credit union
- Popa federal credit union 
Our department will again be able to send exemplary boys and girls, 14-17 years of age, to a 10-day citizenship/leadership program at Marine Corps base, Camp Pendleton, California. Our boys and girls will be prepared physically and academically for the testing and Camp Pendleton. Good grades are a necessity. This program normally runs at the same time that summer school is in session. 
As part of the devil pups good citizenship training at the Biscailuz regional training camp, boys and girls learned the importance of these virtues: honor, courage, and commitment. 
Honor-to be respectful to your family, country, and each other. 
Courage-to set and pursue personal goals. 
Commitment- a promise of resolve to recognize the value of completing your education. 
The orientation and physical qualifications testing was conducted on Sunday, April 28, 2019, from 0800-1300 hours, at the Biscailuz regional training campus, 1060 North Eastern Avenue, Los Angeles, Ca 90063. 
The orientation answered many of the commonly asked questions. All interested applicants took a physical agility test, which included sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups, and a one mile run. Participants were reminded that they should eat at least one hour prior to arriving. Gym clothes and running shoes were required for the physical agility testing. All applicants brought a container of water and/or sports drink. Parents were encouraged to also bring bottled water, two pencils, a clipboard, and a blanket if they wished to sit down on the grass while their child participated in the physical agility testing on the field. 
Until next time, everyone stay safe and look out for the Bear in your city.
