October 11 - 13, 2013
For those seeking Airsoft "games", IRENE is not for you.
IRENE is a tribute exercise that which OLCMSS conducts annually in support of USAREC's mission. It's a closed event to those who apply/qualify for membership in support of the exercise.
All applicants MUST be vouched for by an attending member of OLCMSS (a.k.a. alumni) to ensure that your HEART is in the RIGHT PLACE with us. Each year we pay tribute to the Battle of the Black Sea (Black Hawk Down) due to our VIP Col. McKnight who fought in that mission. Hence, if paying tribute to the military is not high on your agenda this event is not for you.
A $10K check will be presented to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation at IRENE 2013 as we have done previously.
There WILL NOT be the typical "Airsoft Babysitting Service" at IRENE. If YOU fail to READ your WarnOrd, don't know places or times to gather, you have made a choice to hangout at the staging area and we thank you for your support all the same.
RAID missions will be conducted via transports. Like the 2012 exercise, NO "BABYSITTING SERVICE" provided. Time's up, trucks depart to Raid Sites (sure you can walk: site A is about 2.5 miles away and site B is almost 5 miles out).
Troops, let's support this mission with HONOR and DIGNITY as we have in years past.
Registration opens August 12th!
