Abstract:

This report provides details related to the Holley Stick and attachment preferences expressed by each of the three USMC OccField communities. The hypothesis that the three communities would not select the same stick was supported survey results reveal that the engineers selected one stick while the infantry figuratively aligned with the EOD Marines in selecting a different stick. At this point in the process, the candidate Holley Sticks have been handled, the surveys have been administered, and the Marines have spoken. There seems to be more than sufficient convergence of opinion among the respective OccField communities to indicate which sticks and attachments they prefer. Obviously, quality of manufacture and sturdiness and reliability of the poles is paramount. Utilizing the poles that were selected and applying the requested tweaks and modifications should yield Holley Sticks that will please the respective communities.
