Welcome to the ‘Coast Guard Boot Camp Blog!’

Welcome to the “Coast Guard Boot Camp Blog!”

This new blog is our latest effort to improve communication with those people critical to the success of Training Center Cape May and its missions. This blog will serve as another tool to help applicants prepare for boot camp, allow family and friends follow the progress of their recruits, and keep the community informed of our activities.

There are a number of “Categories” on the right-hand side of this site, which will help you find the information you’re looking for about Training Center Cape May. For instance, an applicant looking for information about physical preparation for basic training can click on “Physical Training.” A family member can click on the “Recruit Journals” to read first-hand accounts of the progress of their loved one’s company.

We encourage our new readers to explore our content and share your ideas using our commenting features, which were previously unavailable on our Recruit Journals. Also, please feel free to share our content on your own sites with your friends and family using the variety of “Share” options at the bottom of each blog. We hope you’ll add our blog to your RSS feed so you get the latest information about Training Center Cape May as it’s released.

This site is optimized for mobile viewing, so we hope that you’ll take our new blog with you where ever you go. Applicants can follow workouts from their mobile device at the gym or park while they train for the rigors of basic training. Loved ones can read Recruit Journals from their phone at work if they can’t wait to get home. The idea is you can take Training Center Cape May with you anywhere.

This is a new media for us, so please email us at TRACENPublicAffairs@uscg.mil or use the “Submit Ideas” link on the right-hand side of this screen to provide feedback on current content or future story ideas.

Thank you for your continued support. Semper Paratus!

Sincerely,
Capt. Bill Kelly,
Commanding Officer
Training Center Cape May
